Adam Carr: The Art of Curating and The Curating of Art
Course Time: 80 mins
What is curating? What does an exhibition maker exactly do? In this course, the influential curator and writer Adam Carr will introduce key ideas and methodologies of contemporary exhibition-making, focusing on non-institutional models of curating. Carr will offer a brief introduction to the history of curatorial practice and the recent developments in the triangular conversation between artists, curators and the public that make exhibitions a dynamic platform for contemporary thought. In addition, Carr will introduce several exhibitions he curated to demonstrate effective concepts of context-specific curating that characterize his work. Finally, Carr will discuss various paths that can lead to a successful career as a curator and point at what he believes the future of exhibition practice to be.
