CONJUNCTION

Public Art Curatorial Collective

CONJUNCTION


CONJUNCTION is a globally dispersed collective of 25 mid-career and established curators, artists, designers, educators, and public arts practitioners who first met in January 2020 while attending the year-long professional development course ​Curating and Commissioning Contemporary Public Art ​at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The ‘naming ceremony’ of our public art curatorial collective coincided with the rare interplanetary event of 21 December 2020 known as the great conjunction when the two planets Jupiter and Saturn appeared closest together in the sky and visible to the naked eye.

The nine founding members of CONJUNCTION are Marilyn Lennon, Iliyana Nedkova, Julie Griffiths, Samantha Hookway, Juliette Harvey, Max Rippon, Sebastian Freytag, Sara Brolund de Carvalho and Kerstin Bergendal.
