The meeting with curator, Adelina Cüberyan von Fürstenberg
The meeting with Adelina Cüberyan von Fürstenberg, chief curator of the 1th edition of STANDART Triennial, opens the workshops sessions in Yerevan. During her speech the curator will reveal the ideas behind the process of working on The Mount Analogue exhibitions, inspired by the unfinished novel of French writer and poet René Daumal (1908-1944).
Adelina Cüberyan von Fürstenberg is a renowned international curator who has been credited with broadening contemporary art. She was one of the first curators to show active interest in non-European artists and established a signature multicultural approach in art. With her unique vision on contemporary exhibitions, she has placed art in spaces such as monasteries, medersas, large public buildings, squares, islands, parks, etc. Her works strives to provide a larger context for visual art by making it a more vigorous part of our lives, creating a more vivid dialogue between art forms, and relating it to global social issues.
Adelina is the founder and the first director of the Centre d’Art Contemporain of Geneva. Later, she served as the director of Le Magasin at the Centre National d’Art Contemporain of Grenoble, whose School of Curators is internationally recognized.
