Panel / "Life between Borders," with Melissa Chiu, Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria, Niels van Tomme, Steven Rand, and Heather Felty
Date: Saturday, 12 April 2014, 4–6 pm
Location: Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)
Organized by apexart

Please join us for a panel organized by apexart to celebrate the publication of its latest book Life between Borders: The Nomadic Life of Curators and Artists.

Arts professionals and artists have become increasingly peripatetic, moving so readily and freely around the world that it has become normal practice to travel to new countries for a temporary opportunity. In what ways are identity, and satisfaction, increasingly bound up with these new forms of mobility? And what are the consequences of such frequent travel and relocation for their sense of cultural identity? Addressing these issues, the panel will feature Melissa Chiu, director of the Asia Society Museum, Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria, co-founder of Residency Unlimited, and Niels Van Tomme, curator and writer, and will be moderated by Steven Rand and Heather Felty, apexart's executive director and media director, respectively.

For more information on the book—which offers ten new essays on nomadism by Melissa Chiu, Gitanjali Dang, Jimmie Durham, Mahita El Bacha Urieta, Mekbib Gemeda, Pascal Gielen, Lamia Joriege, Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria, Niels Van Tomme, and Yannis Ziogas—visit apexart.org.

A non-profit arts organization in Lower Manhattan, apexart was conceived to offer opportunities to independent curators and emerging and established artists, as well as to challenge ideas about art, its practice and curation. This mission is realized through exhibitions, an international residency, a book publishing initiative, and public programs and events. Previous apexart publications include Playing by the Rules: Alternative Thinking/Alternative Spaces (2010); Cautionary Tales: Critical Curating (2007); and On Cultural Influence (2006). The organization's next book will address residency programs.

Beer for this event has been lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery.

When is a discovery an invention? When is accumulation art? Is recombination transformation? In an evening of short performances and talks, artists and scholars will consider the relationship between collecting and creating through case studies of their own collections, which include coffee cup lids, signs prohibiting photography, Toscanini's pants, shipwreck memoirs, snapshots, The Beatles' White Album, photos of beds for sale on Craigslist, toilet paper from European hotels, photo postcards, and spoken letters recorded on vinyl.

Participants include Melissa Catanese, Rutherford Chang, Carrie Cooperider, Tim Davis, Louise Harpman, Maira Kalman, Nina Katchadourian, Thomas Y. Levin, Harvey Tulcensky, and Penelope Umbrico.

"A Collective Invention" will be open at 5:30 pm for program attendees.
