This course sets out the skills and practicalities of planning, organising and presenting a contemporary art exhibition or event.
Where other courses concentrate on curating and the development of a professional exhibition proposal, this course covers the logistics of working directly with artists and organisations to deliver a successful exhibition or event.
Using specific examples of contemporary art throughout the course and external visits at the end of the course, we will look at exhibitions in various contexts. This will range from artist-led spaces and self-initiated projects, such as pop-ups and collectives to major institutions and publicly funded galleries. We will also look at contemporary art events such as artists talks, seminars, live art and performance events and screenings.
You will gain practical management skills and will have a better understanding of working with artists, galleries and curators and engaging with audiences. You will also develop your research and presentation skills.
