Thank you to everyone who came out last night to celebrate the opening of The Talent Show in Seattle. Like what you saw? Weren’t able to make it out last night? Want to find out MORE about The Talent Show?
Then come on over this afternoon at 2pm for a conversation with Peter Eleey, curator of The Talent Show, and examines the range of complicated relationships that have emerged between artists, audiences, and participants in light of the competing desires for notoriety and privacy that mark our present cultural moment.
Check out Eleey’s conversation with Evan Ratliff of Wired magazine:
As Curator in the Visual Arts department at the Walker Art Center, Mr. Eleey organized the exhibitions The Talent Show(2010), The Quick and the Dead (2009), and Trisha Brown: So That the Audience Does Not Know Whether I Have Stopped Dancing (2008). He currently holds the position of curator of exhibitions and public programs at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York.
