CURATING ART AFTER NEW MEDIA - PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSEÂ http://www.macurating.net/shortcourse.htm
22nd-28th February 2015, Central London
In 2014 this course ran with curators from Hong Kong, Austria, The Netherlands, Ireland, USA and the UK.
This intensive week-long course in London is aimed at curators, exhibition organisers, educators and others working with contemporary art. The course will critically examine how contemporary curating can best match contemporary art practices, including practices that might be collaborative, or participatory. Since new media including social networking, augmented reality and open source have changed thinking on how art works in time and space, this course aims to update professional knowledge in the field. The local, national and international contexts of curating are rigourously examined.
Visits to discuss with curators at organisations include in 2015:
V&A - Senior Curator, Word and Image Department.
WELLCOME COLLECTION - Exhibitions Curator.
ODI (Open Data Insitute) - Art Associate
SERPENTINE - Curator of Digital
THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S GALLERY - Curator (Digital Programme)
THE WHITE BUILDING - Head of Art and Technology.
