SWOT ANALYSIS EXAMPLE – CURATORIAL METHODOLOGY
Using as an example the practice of xxxx, curator of ‘Salon Salon’ and other significant historicising exhibitions at the Inside Out Art Museum in Beijing, I can analyse the advantages and disadvantages of choosing this curator and his methodology to analyse in Assessment Task 2
STRENGTHS
Texts about his practice available in both English and Chinese
Interviews and articles in both scholarly journals and in other publications
Easily available online information
Museum website provides access to articles and images
Exhibitions in Beijing at Inside Out Art Museum illustrate key aspects of his practice
Images, Texts and Floorplans readily available
Apart from exhibitions at Inside Out Art Museum other examples include at OCT Shenzhen and the 7th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennale
Liu lectures and presents internationally (including with Boris Groys)
WEAKNESSES
More detailed information available in Chinese than in English
His most recent exhibitions have been curated at one museum
Liu Ding is an artist as well as a curator – it might be difficult to separate these practices?
OPPORTUNITIES
A focus on artist as curator/curator as researcher
Transdisciplinary practice – Artist as curator (like Brook Andrew)
A unique perspective on the curator re-examining and recontextualising a specific art history
The exhibition as generative research
THREATS
Chinese language materials would need to be translated if used
Maybe the scope of the most recent exhibitions is rather narrow and historically focused?
