Curator

Curator
24-hr live performance as part of Liquid Architecture‘s program What Would a Feminist Methodology Sound Like?
West Space, Melbourne
17-18 September 2015

Curator was a performance undertaken by both Frances and the two Co-Curators of Liquid Architecture, Danni Zuvela and Joel Stern. This performance was developed within the context of Zuvela and Stern’s performance program, What does a feminist methodology sound like? For a 24-hour period Barrett covered her eyes and requested that the Danni and Joel ‘care’ for her across this time. Curator was a deliberation on the role of the curator in the development and execution of live works, and sought to embody and enact a ‘feminist methodology’ in the shared realisation of the work. The performance required touch, attentiveness, listening and labour that diffused the private and public spaces, bringing the roles of the curator and artist into intimate relation.
