Joseph del Pesco
Monday 4 September 2017

Join us for an evening with curator, writer and publisher Joseph del Pesco, who will read (very) short stories from his forthcoming book, The Museum Took a Few Minutes To Collect Itself, published by Art Metropole in Toronto. He will also give a short presentation, A Thousand to One.

Since 2009 he is Director, and last year became International Director of KADIST (Paris & San Francisco), where he has established a fast-paced program of weekly events that position art as a vehicle for discussion about global, social and political issues, in addition to starting the first residency for international art magazines. Previously he was adjunct curator at Artists Space (NYC), and as an independent curator organised exhibitions, projects and publications at The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Temple Contemporary, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, The Banff Centre, The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the UC Davis Museum among others.

The talk is organised in collaboration with the Critical & Pedagogical Studies programme at Malmö Art Academy.

Metod is an ongoing series of talks about working methods within the field of contemporary art and culture.
