Grégory Castéra

Expert visit in Stockholm 20 - 25 March 2017. Grégory Castéra (b. 1981) is a curator based in Paris, whose practice focuses mainly on institutional experimentation, collaboration, conversation and curation of research. His primary field of interest is the ambivalence of introducing knowledge, practices and works in areas where their legitimacy is contested or not recognised.
With Sandra Terdjman, he is the founder and director of Council (since 2013), a curatorial organisation that researches, produces and supports artists and projects that endeavour to renew the representation of social issues. In 2010 to 2012, he served as co-director of Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, a tool dedicated to artistic production, situated in the city of Aubervilliers, north of Paris. From 2007 to 2014, he has co-authored the Encyclopédie de la parole (Encyclopaedia of Speech), a collaborative inquiry into the formal properties of speech. In 2010, he initiated a programme of curatorial and museographic research on the life of artworks (awarded a Hors les Murs scholarship in 2013).  Grégory is regularly invited to write, give talks and workshop, to advise institutions and curate exhibitions.
