IMA Curatorial Fellow Vivian Ziherl will speak on the theme of ‘Frontier Imaginaries’. Departing from the notion of the ‘Brisbane Line’, she will argue that the ‘frontier’ may instead be understood as where primitive accumulation occurs. From this premise, she will chart the advance of frontier conditions through the eighteenthcentury and nineteenth-century Pacific economy, the reterritoralising nature of the frontier within the era of globalisation, and speculate on the conditions of its possible otherwise.

Vivian Ziherl is a Curator at Amsterdam’s If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want to Be Part of Your Revolution. Her recent projects include Landings (with Natasha Ginwala) at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, David Roberts Art Foundation, NGBK (as part of the Tagore, Pedagogy and Contemporary Visual Cultures Network), Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and other partner organisations, and the performance series Stage It! Parts 1 & 2 (with Hendrik Folkerts) commissioned by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. Ziherl has also presented programmes with the ICA, London, teaches at Sandberg Institute Department of Critical Studies, and is editor of The Lip Anthology. Her writing has been published in the Curating Research anthology (ed. Paul O’Neil and Mick Wilson) and has appeared in E-Flux JournalArt Agenda, Frieze, Leap, Metropolis M, Discipline, and the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art.
