Carson Chan Quotes on the two separated art events
“Large scale platforms can be used to integrate the local and international” Carson Chan
and yet “
#thebiennial has no (declared) central hub and is somehow split into two separate art events.” Chan introduced himself to me after the event and brought up a discussion he’d had with the Biennial of the Americas organizers.
He thought that the official curators and two main art events should not have been separated in programming, promotion, nor text. The exhibitions, Draft Urbanism and First Draft, commingle efforts and therefore should have been treated as such.
