IBB hosting Edwin Jacobs

IBB hosting Edwin Jacobs

Edwin Jacobs, director of Centraal Museum in Utrecht, interview hosted by Instituto Buena Bista (IBB) in Curaçao.

This Thursday, March the 17th at 7 PM, the IBB presents a public interview, conversation and discussion about changes in the art world.

Edwin Jacobs will be in conversation with David Bade, co-founder of the IBB. Edwin Jacobs has a pedagogical background and is known for his embracement of art and education in conjunction with the museum. The phrase ‘Museum as a participatory workshop’ is attributed to him.

IBB wonders how the director of the Centraal Museum in Utrecht , one of the large, leading museums of contemporary and modern art in the Netherlands, relates to the view of a global zeitgeist which is largely determined and dominated by aspects such as marketing, branding, exposure and public outreach. How do we relate to that, to the (art) market, art education and the environment? And to what extent is art distant from the origins of art or are such questions obsolete? Jacobs has an interesting vision on art collecting, which can be relevant for Curaçao.

Students of IBB will actively participate in this event. They will prepare specific questions or a case based on the theme mentioned above.
Presentations and debates are part of their curriculum, preparing them for their advanced studies and future career opportunities.

The public is invited to participate in the conversation or even send a mail with questions, case or topic in advance  to info@institutobuenabista.com. IBB is looking forward to an evening full of interesting exchanges and insights in the contemporary art world.

The language for this evening will be English. There is also the possibility to look at the students works, in their studios.

Meet the current artists in residence at IBB: Damian Marcano (Trinidad / USA), Marieke van Rooy and Domenico Mangano (The Netherlands and Italy) and Pepon Osorio (Puerto Rico / USA).
