Contemporary Curating - ARHT6960

Year - 2020

Students will study the changing role of the curator from traditional contexts in the art museum to contemporary art spaces, public sites, globalized and virtual settings. We examine the curator's increasingly creative role when traditional art hierarchies are radically challenged and divisions of artistic and curatorial labour become blurred.
