In collaboration with Louisville Metro Government Public Art Initiative, 21c Museum Hotel Louisville is hosting a public live-stream screening of this year’s Creative Time Summit. Guests are welcome to come and go, attending the sessions they most wish to see during the two days of presentations. In addition to hearing about creative ideas from around the world via the live-stream from Venice, there will be opportunities to learn from regional artists and innovators during the Louisville Breakout Sessions featuring Steve Sizemore, Colleen Clines, and Simparch.
The 7th Creative Time Summit, devoted to expanded notions of “curriculum,” will take place within Okwui Enwezor’s exhibition for la Biennale di Venezia, All the World’s Futures. Since 2009, the annual Creative Time Summit has operated as a convening, a discussion, and a platform for the intersection of art and politics. La Biennale offers a unique opportunity to gather an international, interdisciplinary community to consider how knowledge is produced and how it comes into contact with civil society. In its original Latin, curriculum signified a course, like the path that one ran around or traversed in a racing chariot. When the term began appearing in seventeenth century Scottish universities, it was used figuratively to mean “a course of study.” Eventually, it signaled that which prepares a person for working, thinking, and participating as a fully developed member of society. When understood as a network of lived experiences, learned actions, and known facts, curriculum speaks of all that this Summit hopes to address.
About the Creative Time Summit: Artists have always raised their voices to speak truth to power, and have never been more important than at this moment in history, when social movements are erupting around the world. Creative Time believes that artists are truly change agents, with the ability to affect society for the better. Each year, the Creative Time Summit explores the many ways in which artists are tackling the world’s most challenging social and political issues. Innovative artists, activists, writers, and curators take the Summit stage to present bold new strategies for social change to a global audience.
Live streaming of the Summit will take place at 21c Louisville on August 11th & 12th, from 9:30am-6pm both days.
