Less like an object more like the weather

Published by the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College on the occasion of the exhibition less like an object more like the weather, curated by second-year students in its graduate program in curatorial studies and contemporary art.

John Cage characterized his longtime collaboration with Merce Cunningham by stating: “It’s less like an object and more like the weather. Because in an object, you can tell where the boundaries are. But in the weather, it’s impossible to say when something begins or ends.” The ethos of the students’ collaboration reflects Cage’s sentiment and prompts the viewer to experience the venture’s heterogeneity less as an object to be assimilated, and more as a movement towards a climate of engagement.

less like an object more like the weather is designed by Isabelle Vaverka and Lu Liang and features contributions from the curators and participants of the spring curatorial projects including: Robin Wallis Atkinson, Jessica Baran, Shumon Basar, Juana Berrío, Jean Marie Casbarian, John Cullinan, Olga Dekalo, Cora Fisher, Sarah Fritchey, Stephanie Harris, Marie Heilich, Sarah Higgins, Fawz Kabra, Annie Godfrey Larmon, María Montero Sierra, Marina Noronha, Michael Rakowitz, Tara Ramadan, Arden Sherman, and Karly Wildenhaus.
