Charlotte Street Foundation is pleased to present a welcome reception and introductory talk by 2013-14 Charlotte Street Curator-in-Residence Danny Orendorff. This event kicks off Orendorff’s immersive 10-month curatorial residency in Kansas City, through which he will produce a series of exhibitions and programs for Charlotte Street’s la Esquina gallery, work directly with Kansas City artists and students, and engage with the broader community.
Curator’s Talk: Wednesday, September 11, 2013
Time: 7pm reception; 7:30pm talk
Venue: la Esquina / 1000 West 25th Street KCMO 64108
In his talk, Orendorff will provide an introduction to his prior work as an independent curator, writer, and activist, and present a preview of the exhibition projects he is planning for Kansas City. Informed by queer, feminist, anti-racist, and social justice theories, and interested in how contemporary art intersects with politics and pleasure in both literal and figurative ways, Orendorff’s presentation will include discussion of how he expresses those theories and politics through his curatorial work.
