The 2023 SummerWorks Performance Festival was curated by, and in conversation with, six Guest Curators who met regularly over several months during the curation of this year’s Festival. They shared their research and ongoing artistic interests and interrogations, and engaged in thoughtful discussion to come to the curatorial decisions for SummerWorks’ four programming streams.
In this roundtable-style conversation, facilitated by Sue Balint, the Guest Curators come together once again to reflect on this unique curatorial model, to ask each other questions about supporting artists and their practice, to discuss the themes they have seen emerge across programming streams, and reflect on what they’ve learned from the experience of collaborating in this way.
Guest Curators: Sue Balint, Ralph Escamillan, Aria Evans, Jivesh Parasram, ted witzel, Alison Wong
