Curatorial Residency Program in Mexico
Mexico City, Mexico
From November 13th to 26th, 2023
From November 13th to 26th, Quebec curator Sylvie Parent will be in residency in Mexico, where she will be hosted by our partner ACT.
This is the second networking and support program for curators between Quebec and Mexico. This residency is both a professional development project, a network relationship consolidation, a discovery of artistic approaches and an opportunity to be inspired by creative activities from elsewhere in view of developing future exhibition projects.
Sylvie Parent is an independent curator and art critic. She is interested in projects at the intersection of art, science and technology. Her current research focuses on living matter in a deeply temporal perspective, from its emergence to its possible disappearance in the context of the current ecological crisis.
Her exhibitions include L’autre monde/Out of this World (Biennale de Montréal, 2000), Location/Dislocation (New Museum, New York, 2001), Inside (Beijing International New Media Art Exhibition, 2006; Paço das Artes, São Paulo, 2008), Telofossils (MOCA, Taipei, 2013) and Éveil/Alive/Despertar (SESC Santana, São Paulo, 2014). From 2009 to 2014, she was the artistic director of Molior.
In the publishing field, she has served as the editor of online magazines (HorizonZero, Magazine du CIAC) and contributed to several specialized journals (Parachute, Ciel Variable, Espace art actuel, etc.). She is also the author of numerous essays for exhibition catalogues and artist monographs.
Sylvie Parent is the recipient of the Joan-Yvonne-Lowndes Award (2017) given by the Canada Council for the Arts to an independent art critic or curator in recognition of the exceptional quality of his or her work.
