The evolution of the role of curator has been both celebrated and highly contested, especially in the last twenty years. This course provides participants with a strong understanding of historical and current curatorial practices through the analysis of different exhibitions and display platforms, looking at the museum model in comparison with independent galleries as well as the relationship between the artist and curator. Participants are equipped with a sound introduction to different aspects of the profession. The course is designed for those who wish to pursue a career in the field, besides those interested in curating their own exhibitions.

Suitable for beginners as well as art world professionals looking to develop their existing knowledge and expertise.

This course includes:

  • Certificate of participation on completion of the course;
  • Eight-week term, with a half-term break;
  • Lecture with time for questions and discussion each week;
  • Wine receptions with faculty and fellow participants;
  • Networking opportunities with faculty and fellow participants.
  • Learning in the Institute's historic Georgian townhouse campus at the heart of Bloomsbury.
