The last event of this year Laboratorium of Curatorial practices was a workshop which took place in Poreč between 29th and 31st of August under the mentorship of Petja Grafenauer Krnc. The participants’ task was to write an expertise – reflection of this year’s project – which will later be published in one of the editions of the Art Words magazine.
In the course of the workshop we organized a visit of the six days long lasting international Festival of Light in Bravarija in Poreč on Friday evening.
