Binna Choi, Director of Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory in Utrecht, is the keynote speaker for the 2016 ST PAUL St Curatorial Symposium: Ako mai, Ako, atu. Choi has been director of Casco since May 2008. In this role she has taken up art institutional practice as a way to build a (micro) society in motion, in tandem with social movements. Continuing Casco’s practice of artistic research and experimentation, Choi’s particular focus lies in challenging modes of working and organisational structures. While experimenting with art and curatorial practices around ideas of authorship and modes of production, she is also committed to alternative forms of community engagement, locally embedded practices, and trans-local collaborations.
This lecture opens the 2016 Symposium on Friday 15 July which includes a day of presentations at Auckland Art Gallery auditorium, followed by a wānanga on Saturday 16 July.
