AFVS 118C - Curating Contemporary Art: Exhibitions, Artists, Institutions, and Audiences

Description
This course introduces the practice and study of curating contemporary art, examining exhibition typologies such as biennials, solo exhibitions, thematic and historical surveys, publications, and public programs; working with living artists; the institutional context of the museum, alternative space, commercial gallery, and performance venue; and questions around audiences and communities. Through exhibition viewings, meetings with curators and artists, and readings and discussion, we will critically engage the role of curator and art institution within a broad cultural and contemporary art context. Notes: Interested students must attend the first meeting of the course to speak with teaching staff about enrollment procedure.
