Practicing Curating

Fall 2022

Taught By: Alhena Katsof

Section: AX

CRN: 2796

Credits: 4

Practicing Curating will offer an in-depth introduction to curatorial practice, examining the art of exhibition-making from a cultural and theoretical perspective. The course looks at current and historical exhibitions that engage a range of public platforms, as well as curatorial writing practices related to exhibition-making. Students will gain hands-on experience in many aspects of organizing a public project. To accomplish this, the first half of the course will introduce students to the critical analysis of curatorial projects. We will experiment with writing for various curatorial activities including exhibition reviews and research presentations. The second half of the course will focus on the production of a curatorial platform in the form of an exhibition proposal collectively conceived and managed by the student cohort. Project-oriented assignments may include communication with artists, image and caption management, archival practices, and design. Together we will strategically mobilize resources, platforms, and strengths of the university in order to realize our project. Coursework will involve workshopping curatorial processes through activities such as studio visits, screenings, and research—all of which are an essential part of this class. Prerequisite: Introduction to Art History and Visual Studies or Exhibitions as History. This upper-level course is restricted to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Enrollment is subject to program director's permission.
