WORLD OF ART 2010/11
School for curators and critics of contemporary art
Deadline: March 23, 2010
The World of Art enables participants to learn the knowledge, skills and methods needed to tackle the complex issues in the world of art.
The school is intended for all who are interested in working in the field of contemporary art, regardless of experience, age and education.
The annual school program is internal and for a selected group of participants who will be chosen by open call. The course has two semesters:
- the first semester (April–June 2010) will be dedicated to the acquisition of art – historical, theoretical and methodological skills
- the second semester (September 2010–May 2011) will be dedicated to critical and curatorial studies and practice.
The program includes lectures, seminars, workshops, research work, modules on the practical work of the curator, study excursions and practice in galleries. The process comprises the organisation of events, studio visits, meetings with curators, artists, theorists, and writers, and teamwork in conceptualisation and preparing an exhibition of contemporary art under the tutor’s leadership.
Fee: 400 euros (VAT included)
