21-27 February 2016, Central London
This intensive week-long course in London is aimed at curators, exhibition organisers, educators and others working with contemporary art. The course will critically examine how contemporary curating can best match contemporary art practices, including practices that might be collaborative, or participatory. Since new media including social networking, augmented reality and open source have changed thinking on how art works in time and space, this course aims to update professional knowledge in the field. The local, national and international contexts of curating are rigourously examined.
Visits to discuss with curators at organisations will include in 2016:
V&A, Tate, ODI (Open Data Insitute), Morgan Quaintance (DAM PROJECTS, Cubitt Gallery), furtherfield, and Whitechapel Art Gallery.
