Amid a global health crisis and increasing divisions across communities and nations, we are collectively facing new and urgent questions on what it means to think and act on a transnational, planetary level while also being firmly rooted and committed to the local.
In this talk, Dr. Sook-Kyung Lee (Senior Curator, International Art, Tate Modern) shares how the Tate’s Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational (HTRC:T) engenders curatorial questioning of the geopolitics of global art histories, as well the museum’s collections in a decolonial context.
Over the last two decades following the establishment of Tate Modern, Tate’s collection has grown in its cultural and geographic scope to present a more global art history to its audiences.
The HTRC:T was founded in 2019 as a hub for museum-based curatorial and art historical research, where the phenomenon of ‘transnational’ runs as a continuum to examine, review and reframe art histories and curatorial methods.
