Call for entries
rethinking exhibition models of the Venice Biennale in relation to the history of the curatorial practices.
06.12 – 22.12.22
This workshop online provides an immersive and active understanding of curatorial practice and its developments in the last decades. Through the work of some of the most remarkable curators, the students will develop an understanding of how curating works by looking back at its history and by examining certain case studies. The analysis of specific editions of the Venice Art Biennale will give us the possibility to look to the predecessors and the influences of specific curators on their work. But it is also an opportunity to explore the ways in which the curatorial practices are changing and examine increasingly diverse approaches to exhibition-making.
The objectives of the workshop:
To gain familiarity with different types of models of curatorial practices and evaluate the essential qualities of a strong curator through understanding the historical and contemporary role of the curator in relation to past and recent exhibition models.
After each session a discussion will be hold in order to exchange different opinions and views on the approach of the singular curatorial practice. Rethinking specific curatorial models, by analyzing their origins and their subsequent developments is one of the key elements of the workshop.The mission is to create a critical ability in order to discover the proper curatorial model.
Practical exercise: in the last session every participants will have to present an exhibition project by applying one of the models identified during the workshop.
The fee per course is 590 euro. In case you choose to take part to more then one course, a discount of 100 euro will be applied to the fee of the next courses.
