On Wednesday, 17 September, Madre museum will take part in the international Twitter-based event #AskACurator.
For one day it will be possible to chat with the curators of the leading museums of the world, satisfying any curiosity about the world of art, discovering what lies behind the conception, communication, organization and preparation of an exhibition, and understanding “from within” the curatorial experience and its role in the museum.
Eugenio Viola – co-curator, with Alessandro Rabottini, of the project Per_forming a collection and, with Andrea Viliani, of the current exhibition of Francis Alÿs REEL-UNREEL (Afghan Projects, 2010-14) – will answer your questions during the live Twitter Q&A.
