Syllabus Description:

ART 496:  Curating Contemporary Art

Instructor: Emily Zimmerman, zimmee3@uw.edu

This class examines the production of exhibitions from both theoretical and practical standpoints. We will look at exhibitions as a vehicle for the reception of art, philosophies of aesthetic experience, knowledge production, and cultural politics.  In order to do so, we will study curatorial methodologies, historical exhibition formats, key watershed exhibitions that changed the dialog on the practice, as well as the practical skills associated with realizing an exhibition. Special attention will be paid to artist-curated exhibitions, which make up many of the most important experimental exhibitions over the last 50 years. During the class you will participate in the production of the exhibition, “James Coupe: Exercises in Passivity.”
