BICI also provides research-based programs in the form of residencies and workshops, as well as practicum opportunities. BICI’s programs and activities serve the communities of curators, artists, researchers, writers, critics, philosophers, and other cultural producers at various career stages. These programs offer ongoing professional development and complement degree granting curatorial programs by providing a venue to meet, explore, and continue research.

Program Overview

The Living Agreement symposium is a gathering to learn with artists, curators, and creative practitioners who reflexively engage relationships between institutions, artists, and publics as a form of artistic practice. 

Drawing on the work of artist Carmen Papalia and his proposal to consider accessibility as a temporary and relational practice, this three-day symposium asks how the triangulated relationships between artists, audiences, and institutions might be re-thought as a ‘living agreement.'

In this cross-disciplinary conversation, artists, curators, art historians, writers, and theorists will reflect on a range of themes. 

What does the program offer?

The Living Agreement symposium will feature presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and active engagement with a range of artistic practices and artists.

The symposium is designed to generate conversation and reflection around models for working together, including critical discourse around museum access; Indigenous methodologies and implications for western institutional models; legacies of institutional critique and current responses in artistic and curatorial practice; and intersections across these disciplines with current conversations in socially engaged art.

Who should apply?

This symposium is open to curators, art historians, writers and theorists, cultural critics, and researchers working within the field of visual arts.  Applicants should demonstrate an exhibition/publication history, and have completed formal training in visual arts or a related field at the post-secondary level or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers and communities.
