In 2015, Terry Smith launched his second publication, Talking Contemporary Curating, as part of ICI's series Perspectives in Curating.

To accompany the Melbourne launch of this important publication, Terry Smith will be speaking with Rebecca Coates (curator and writer, Fellow, School of Culture and Communication, UoM, and Director, SAM, Shepparton Art Museum) and Tara McDowell (Associate Professor, Curatorial Practice, MADA, Monash University). The conversation will be moderated by Professor Charles Green.

Talking Contemporary Curating offers timely reflections by curators, art historians, critics, and artists on emergent debates in curatorial practice around the world. Featuring arts industry professionals and theorists deeply immersed in reflecting upon the demands of their respective practices; the contexts of exhibition making; and the platforms through which art may be made public.
