24 February to 2 March 2019, Central London

 

In 2019 this course will run for the 6th year. Past course attendees have included curators and researchers from Hong Kong, Bahrain, India, USA, Canada, Austria, The Netherlands, Greece, Ireland, France and the UK.

 

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 and open source have changed thinking on how art works in time and space, this course aims to update professional knowledge in the field.

 

Visits to discuss with curators at organisations will include:

TATE

VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM

INIVA

and previous years have also included:

THE PHOTOGRAPHERS GALLERY

ODI (OPEN DATA INSTITUTE)

FURTHERFIELD

TENDERPIXEL

MACHINES ROOM
