The conversation between Candice Hopkins and Pablo José Ramírez investigates notions of sound and indigenous art, looking critically at the hierarchies regularly established between the sonic and the visual realm.
How to reconsider this relationship in indigenous cultural practices? How to look at it when developing curatorial and institutional discourses? What kind of methodologies can we learn from indigenous knowledge when thinking on the practice of curating?
The talk was co-presented with Independent Curators International (ICI) on August 19th, 2020.
Independent Curators International (ICI) supports the work of curators to help create stronger art communities through experimentation, collaboration, and international engagement. Curators are arts community leaders and organizers who champion artistic practice; build essential infrastructures and institutions; and generate public engagement with art. Our collaborative programs connect curators across generations, and across social, political, and cultural borders. They form an international framework for sharing knowledge and resources — promoting cultural exchange, access to art, and public awareness for the curator’s role.
