In the spirit of transparency and beginnings, I’m going to mention a few details of the first meeting of the new cohort of Open Space writers, which took place at B bar, above YB Gardens, on a Wednesday night beginning at 7 p.m. One of our group had just come from teaching a class in which students were presenting their completed assignment: playing the role of an INTERVIEWER or INTERVIEWEE for a curatorial job. In addition to preparing questions or answers, the students were to dress the part of the role they were playing. Though I didn’t ask, I’m guessing the following costumes might have been included: Non-profit artist-run space; corporate art collection; urban art museum; college art museum or gallery; private museum/foundation. The longer I go on with this list, the more questions arise. The exercise sounds like a mightily useful one, if excruciating to participate in.
