The event Palm Beach County – An Evening With Cory Scozzari on Tuesday 13 November 2018 presents an entanglement of current Helsinki International Curator Programme HICP resident Cory Scozzari’s curatorial and artistic practice and personal life.
Cory Scozzari‘s presentation will unfold specific histories and trajectories that affect his current working (life), charting the shift from punk/DIY and communal living projects to more ‘traditional’ curatorial endeavors. The presentation will also touch on his geographical origin and relate this past to issues of masculinity, social class, internalized and cultural homophobia and the definition of self-worth under neoliberalism. Finally he will elaborate on his experiences of exhaustion and the process of learning the limits of work within the paradigm of productivity and professionalism.
Scozzari is an curator and artist. He is the founding director of Cordova, a curatorial project initiated in 2016 in Vienna, currently located in Barcelona and in residence at Fundació Antoni Tapies. Cory now works as a curator, and from 2015–2017 worked as assistant curator at Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21). He was a founding member and co-director of Jupiter Woods, London/Vienna from 2014–2016. He received his BFA in photography for SCAD in 2010 and his MFA in Curating from Goldsmiths in 2015. His recent exhibitions include HAPPINESS: with Jaakko Pallasvuo, Anni Puolakka, Tarwuk and Viktor Timofeev at Art-O-Rama in Marseille and Hopes and dreams for the future with Amy Lien and Enzo Camacho in collaboration with Harry Burke at Cordova in Barcelona.
