ART PAPERS Live: A Conversation with Triple Candie

October 21, 2017 | 3:00 pm

Free and open to the public.

What value do museums place on art objects, and how does that affect what they choose to exhibit? How in turn does that affect how you value objects, and what you learn and how you behave in a museum? These were questions raised in Kirk Varnedoe’s first major exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1990, and they are central to Triple Candie’s curatorial practice, which avoids fine art completely and reduces all objects displayed to the status of the surrogate or prop.

Telfair partners with ART PAPERS magazine to present a conversation with Triple Candie around the issues and themes presented in Kirk Varnedoe: In the Middle at the Modern. The conversation will be moderated by Victoria Camblin, editor and artistic director of ART PAPERS, with Shelly Bancroft and Peter Nesbett, the art historians/co-founders of Triple Candie, and special guests. The conversation begins at 3pm, and Triple Candie will be available in the galleries after the discussion at 4pm.
