Curatorial Practice in the Arts

This course focuses on the dynamic field of curatorial practice in contemporary art and performance. Through the study of the changing perception of the role of the curator as one who has traditionally "cared for" objects of art, to one who innovates, mediates, critiques and produces, students will gain knowledge of how exhibitions bring works of art and performance to the public. In addition students will research the role of technology and other evolving forms of curatorial practice.
