Interference presents fourteen graduate exhibitions curated by the M.A. candidates of the Class of 2022 at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard). For their entire first semester, in the fall of 2020, the class met under an open-air rental tent on the Center’s front lawn—some attended in person, seated six feet apart around long tables, and others were remote, projected in a grid on a standing screen. Collective conversation took place over wind and reverb. Under these hybrid conditions, change and adaptation became central to this cohort’s experience of curatorial studies and to the development of these exhibitions. Interference probes approaches to histories, archives, notions of embodiment, artistic production, and the gallery space itself. These inquiries unfold across exhibitions that build upon interdisciplinary collaborations within the evolving field of curatorial practice.
Interference will also present a selection of works by luminary artist, curator, and esteemed CCS Bard alum Jenni Crain (1991-2021) in the Lobby Atrium.
