Curator Talk with Ryan Rice
How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You?
In this guest lecture, Ryan Rice will speak from his experience as a curator, critic and cultural mediator in relation to Indigenous presence across the field of contemporary art and culture. With the CONTACT Festival as the current site of contemplation, issues around curatorial practice, photography and lens-based media will be a focal point to usurp spaces of agency primed for decolonization.
