Virtual Panel Discussion
"All the World's Futures: Global Art and Art History in the Wake of COVID-19"
Thursday, March 4, 5:00–6:00 pm
Since the beginning of the 21st century, the global turn has shifted art history and contemporary curatorial practices to consider global-scale issues. Less an attempt to study the whole world, the global is a methodology that has been used to decenter national discourses and challenge Euro-American-centrism and Orientalist narratives. At its best, global art history and curatorial practices emphasize mobility, exchange, networks, transnational and transcultural studies. At its worst, the global turn has engendered and normalized travel dependent practices that celebrate biennials, art fairs and a roster of globe-trotting curators, collectors and artists. Beginning in January 2020, the global art world ground to a halt due to the unprecedented and all-encompassing COVID-19 pandemic.
Borrowing the title of the 2015 Venice Biennale curated by Okwui Enwezor, this panel considers the current "state of things." Held about a year after the first cases of COVID-19 were publicly identified in the United States, the panel acts as a space of reflection to consider the impacts of the pandemic on global practices and the possibilities that have arisen.
