Syllabus Description:

ART496/498: Curating Contemporary Art

This class integrates the theory and practice of curating contemporary art through a series of lectures and conversations with leading curators in the field, culminating in the organization and installation of an exhibition Lux Aeterna. 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, the history of curating, 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.
