“Protocols of Participation” curated by Alexander Nagel and Thomas Crow (Institute of Fine Art - New York University) - “Civic Society and New Patronage” curated by Tom Eccles (CCS Bard College) and Fionn Meade (Bard College and Columbia University)

The Nouveaux Commanditaires (in English, New Protocol) program is a socially engaged initiative created by the artist François Hers and supported by Fondation de France. It allows citizens plagued with societal unrest or the difficult conditions of a developing nation to pair with a contemporary artist who transforms their concern into a work of art. This singular program arranges collaborations between three key players: the artist, the civil society, and the cultural mediator, with the involvement of public and private partners. Doing so, this action attracts internationally acclaimed artists with a variety of different
art practices.

Using the New Protocol as a model, Art & Society anaylizes similar initiatives in the United States. Workshops will introduce the role of mediator within the New Protocol context and consider its significance to the larger curatorial and commissioning field.

April 23, 5:30pm
