Clark Art talk: Curating Jerusalem

November 12 @ 5:30 pm

View from the terrace into the Williamstown Art Conservation Center.

Clark/Oakley Humanities Fellow Kirsten Scheid will give a talk on Curating Jerusalem.

Treating an exhibition as a “system of action” can give people a partly physical, sensory space. In this lecture, Scheid examines an exhibition she co-curated in 2018 in Jerusalem as a space where people could analyze the experience of having their lives bundled into incomplete labels like ‘Palestinian’ or ‘Israeli Arab.’

Kirstein Scheid is associate professor of anthropology at the American University of Beirut, where she studies imagination technologies, artistic materialities, and social change specifically through cases of modern and contemporary Arab art.

Her essays appear in Anthropology Now, ARTMargins, the International Journal of Middle East Studies, and Museum Anthropology. She has co-curated “The Jerusalem Show” (Jerusalem, 2018) and “The Arab Nude” (Beirut, 2016), and exhibited at the New Museum (2011), and consulted for the Tate Modern (2014) and the MoMA (2016-8). At the clark, Scheid will complete an historically informed ethnography of aesthetic encounters that make up contemporary Palestine and point to new political imaginings.
