Welcome and Course Description

This course is designed to introduce students to ideas and issues concerning the theory, ethics and contexts of art museum/gallery curatorial practice. Students will become familiar with the macro-and micro-contexts of art institutions through investigations of specific areas of curatorial responsibility and duty. Emphasis on communication, through written and oral exercises, will assist students in exploring interpretations of sensitive material, including historical, cultural and religious artworks. Our studies will introduce some of the specialized vocabulary, resources, references and methodologies of the study of art history in conjunction with an exploration of the professional and academic responsibilities of art-based curatorial work.
