The talk is part of the symposium Locality and Circulation: Curating Geography, hosted and moderated by Mia Yu in Beijing. 

14:00–16:00

Between Beirut to Chandigarh: Two Biennale Practices will discuss Khalidi's curatorial work for the upcoming Chandigarh Biennial in India, as well as an earlier exhibition he organized for the 13th Sharjah Biennale in Beirut, An Unpredictable Expression of Human Potential. With his work for these two biennials as starting points, Khalidi will discuss the pitfalls of thematic exhibitions, how to work together with the invited artists, colonial issues and power relationships in regard to making exhibitions.
