Curator's Workshop

Ann Tarantino

September 5 to September 15

Curator's Workshop is a course in hands-on experience in curatorial practices and exhibition design taught by Assistant Professor of Art, Ann Tarantino. Students will research historical and contemporary curatorial practices, gain an understanding of how curators function within institutional and alternative settings, engage in exhibition design and installation, practice curatorial writing, and collaboratively design and implement an exhibition concept in a campus setting. Twice during the course of all semester, students will use Borland Project Space to document their processes and exhibition proposals, culminating in a public presentation of final projects in the space. In September, students will use the project space to craft and present mock exhibition texts and didactic materials. In November, students will act as guest curators for the 2nd-year MFA exhibition taking place in the space. In December, student final projects will be on view in the space and students will give “gallery talks” about their exhibition proposals.
