Frontier Imaginaries is a roaming art platform and research initiative with iterations in Brisbane, Jerusalem, Eindhoven, Amsterdam and New York that takes the frontier as the condition for globalization and colonial history alike. Join Frontier Imaginaries curator and founder Vivian Ziherl in conversation with Elizabeth Povinelli, Franz Boas Professor of Anthropology at Columbia University (and longtime Frontier Imaginaries contributor and co-conspirator) to discuss how colonial norms and forces “appear,” how curating is implicated and how social gatherings, exhibitions, images and forms can rebel. Presented by MA Curatorial Practice.
