This CreArt workshop "The current work of curator. Workshop on curatorial practice" offers the participants the opportunity to learn, discuss and reflect on an issue of great importance in the world of European and international art

DATES: 29 APRIL-2 MAY 2016

TIMETABLE:  Morning and afternoon session

LANGUAGE: The workshop will be conducted in English.

TOPIC: The Curatorial Practice Workshop is designed to immerse participants in the processes of developing an idea for an exhibition or other curatorial program into a full proposal. Aimed toward self-motivated individuals — artists and curators working independently or in institutions — the workshop will include a series of presentations on curatorial methodologies and roles. In the second half of the workshop, participants will be asked to draw a curatorial proposal based on the ideas addressed in the first half of the workshop. The briefing will be based in a real briefing for an existing curatorial open call – participants will then leave with a proposal that they can use.
