Editor’s Note: This event is part of the 2021/22 Emily Hall Tremaine Journalism Fellowship for Curators, following three posts by the Fellow, the third of which is an email-only exhibition that was sent to all Hyperallergic newsletter subscribers.
On Tuesday, February 22, at 7pm (EST), join us for a special event with curator Dan Cameron as he discusses the trips he has taken over the past eight years to Chiloé, an island off the coast of Chile teeming with art, culture, and history, and his upcoming Hyperallergic email exhibition, which features a selection of work by local artists.
The conversation will explore the work of eight contemporary artists based in Chiloé whose images, Cameron says, “have stuck with [him] consistently over the last several years,” and will also focus on how his ideas about curating an exhibition surrounding this unique community have evolved over time.
Dan Cameron is a New York-based curator, art writer and educator, whose public career began in 1982 with his New Museum exhibition, Extended Sensibilities, the first museum effort in the US to examine gay and lesbian identity in art. In the intervening 40 years, Cameron has held senior curatorial positions at the New Museum, Orange County Museum of Art, and CAC New Orleans, and in 2008 he was the founder of Prospect New Orleans, the contemporary art triennial to benefit the city after Hurricane Katrina. Dan has organized numerous biennials and other major exhibitions around the world, authored hundreds of published texts on contemporary art, and taught and lectured at numerous museums and universities. His book on Nicole Eisenman’s paintings was published in 2021 by Lund Humphries.
