Moderated by Fred Bidwell (Collector and Founder)
Friday September 15 | 2:30–3:30pm

Jens Hoffmann and Michelle Grabner will engage in a discussion on the past, present, and future of the large-scale exhibition concept—what new can a biennial or triennial exhibition bring at a time when forces of nationalism and regionalism clash with the progressive, global traditions of the Venice biennale, Documenta, and others? Placing FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art within the context of this evolution, Hoffmann and Grabner will preview their plans for the Summer of 2018. Reception to follow.
