The Art of Curating and The Curating of Art
What is curating? What does an exhibition maker exactly do? In this course, the influential curator and writer Adam Carr will introduce key ideas and methodologies of contemporary exhibition-making, focusing on non-institutional models of curating. Carr will offer a brief introduction to the history of curatorial practice and the recent developments in the triangular conversation between artists, curators and the public that make exhibitions a dynamic platform for contemporary thought. In addition, Carr will introduce several exhibitions he curated to demonstrate effective concepts of context-specific curating that characterize his work. Finally, Carr will discuss various paths that can lead to a successful career as a curator and point at what he believes the future of exhibition practice to be.
