Completed. Registration closed. Curating Contemporary Art

Registration is closed.

Course Description

The figure of the curator has transformed significantly over recent decades, and this 2-day course will introduce a range of developments within the field of curating from the beginning of Modernism to the present day. The shifting roles and activities of curators will be explored through a selection of key practitioners and historical case studies that are reflective of a range of different contexts and topics, including custodial duties within institutions, collaborative ways of producing exhibitions, debate upon the distinction between artists and curators, and the emergence of ‘über-curators’ at international biennales. This course encourages students to critique exhibitions and participate within group activities and discussion upon issues relating to the politics of display and interpretation, and how artworks are ascribed value and meaning within exhibitions.
