Exhibitions and Curating

Creator, Viewer, Curator

This is a new section of the website intended to explore the importance of looking at, responding to and presenting art to the world. The new guide encourages students to become aware of how art is curated and displayed, how artists think and present work as well as make it. Students will consider their own  their intentions and views on why and how they make their work.

The section on Curatorial Practice includes discussion of  artist and viewer experience, methods of display, gallery visits and questions, and curating activites.

The pages on Visiting Exhibitions provides tips and clear guidelines for visiting and responding to exhibitions at Museums and galleries.

The Selected Artists and Shows takes a look at a range of artists and exhibitions, often with relevant teaching suggestions. 

The Critique  has guidelines, questions and suggestions for group and individual reflections and feedback.
