This week’s course explores the concept of SITES in art curation, including site-specific, site-responsive, and site-sensitive artworks, covering physical, historical, social, and anthropological aspects.Julie introduces the different types of spaces such as domestic,public,post industrial and heritagespaces, and analyses their impact on artworks.
Site-specific art has an important status and value in contemporary art because it challenges the independence and self-referentiality of modernist sculpture, closely integrates artworks with the environment, and emphasises the interaction and sensory experience between artworks and viewers (kwon). This art form not only focuses on the formal and aesthetic value of the artwork, but also on its social and political significance, and therefore has a broader influence and value.
