Artmaking in the Age of Global Capitalism

The Curator is a performance by Frances Barrett in response to a question posed by Liquid Architecture, an arts organisation for artists working with sound, “What does a feminist methodology sound like?” Two curators are asked to fully care for the artist including feeding, toileting, boarding and entertaining over a 24-hour period. The implications arising from Curator around care, hospitality, feminism, curatorial responsibilities, tolerance, and gender are considered. It also includes philosophical questions on immanence, and forms of ethics. There is an analysis of scenes from Certain Women (2017) a film directed by Kelly Reichardt that touches on similar themes.

Keywords:   Ethics, Feminism, Deleuze, Immanence, Tolerance, Hospitality, Care, Curators, Certain Women (2017)
