Course Introduction

The term 'curating' is used to refer to a wide range of activities including organising art exhibitions, festivals and professional events, staging of lecture series, public conversations, reading groups, and even the management of our lives on social media. This course explores how curating allows us to stage culture and put knowledge into circulation in multiple ways, and to place its practices in a historical and critical context. Throughout this degree you will: Study core modules in the history and theory of curating, alongside electives in art history and visual culture. Gain practical experience of working on a group project with one of several public'sector partner organisations. Have the opportunity to join historical and theoretical study with curatorial practice in the contemporary public realm. At the end of the degree you will take part in an exhibition of group projects with partner institutions.
