WHW is comprised of Ivet Ćurlin, Ana Dević, Nataša Ilić, and Sabina Sabolović, four curators who have been collaborating consistently since 1999. WCCW and WHW will discuss how collaboration benefits their respective creative practices, and the day-to-day strategies they use to maintain productive working partnerships.
This event is part of a Clockshop residency by the Croatian curatorial collective What, How & for Whom/WHW.
The WCCW (Women’s Center for Creative Work) is a Los Angeles-based network of women engaged in conversations about contemporary feminisms and creative practices. The WCCW provides professional, emotional, and artistic nourishment for female-driven creative projects and runs a women-lead creative workspace in Frogtown.
What, How & for Whom/WHW is a group of four curators from Croatia who have been collaborating since 1999. Its members, based in Zagreb and Berlin, are Ivet Ćurlin, Ana Dević, Nataša Ilić, and Sabina Sabolović. WHW organizes a range of production, exhibition, and publishing projects. The group is particularly interested in creative use of public space. Since 2003, WHW has programmed Gallery Nova, a city-owned gallery in Zagreb that hosts exhibitions of international and local artists, as well as lectures and public discussions. Described in the New York Times as “deeply influential,” WHW has worked in many international contexts, including the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía; Istanbul Biennial; Creative Capital in New York City; and Kunsthalle Fridericianum in Kassel.
This event is made possible with support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding, NEA Art Works and the Republic of Croatia Ministry of Culture, with additional support from the Pasadena Art Alliance and Karen Hillenburg.
