The CCA is pleased to present an evening with renowned curator, Dorothee Richter, who will showcase her innovative projects initiated with young curators, including the latest one, Curating Your Context, which connects specific public issues with experimental curatorial practice. Curating Your Context (conceived in collaboration with Andrea Roca) is an in-progress project designed to highlight and question local contexts through the collaboration of curators, artists, and “the public.” (concept D. Richter and Andrea Roca).
