HOW TO OBSERVE A NOCTURNAL SKY

Artist: Alexandra Laudo

How to Observe a Nocturnal Sky is a performative lecture in which curator Alexandra Laudo considers some astronomical phenomena and outstanding moments in the history of astronomy – and, in particular, of what was historically one of the most prominent observatories in Europe, the former Calton Hill Observatory in Edinburgh- in relation tophilosophical reflections on the night, the darkness, and our ways ofseeing. Throughout the conference, Laudo also talks about different artistic works that have explored these questions, thus constructing a story that is also a curatorial exercise, a narrated exhibition. The proposal combines references belonging to astronomy, history and visual culture through narrative strategies, blurring the boundaries between curatorial performance, art exhibition, and formal lecture.
