The Summer course in Curatorial Practice is an English-taught, intensive program on the history of contemporary visual arts and practices of exhibition-making, taking place during the 57th International Art Biennale of Venice. Through interdisciplinary lectures, the course provides practical training and experience within museums and exhibition settings. Its international faculty includes curators and museum professionals, artists and critics. The course is designed to increase the students understanding of the intellectual and technical tasks of the curator figure related to the set up of exhibitions and projects. The lectures cover both theoretical and practical topics that go from History of Exhibition to Exhibition Management.
The students participate in weekly activities such as artist studio visits, tours of exhibition spaces, networking events, and workshops with a variety of experts and practitioners. The program culminates with the set up of an exhibition or an art event and the publication of a printed catalogue.
