5th October 2017 – The Role of the Curator

Our panel of guests examines the role of the curator, which has become an over-used term in popular culture. In devising an exhibition, how do curators work with artists to devise a narrative and how can a curator help develop an exhibition that presents a coherent narrative to reflect the artist’s vision?

12th October 2017 – Exhibition Planning & Logistics

The panel looks at the logistics of mounting an exhibition. Hanging options, lighting, working together with artists and the gallery, planning deadlines. This talk will examine how to develop an exhibition on a budget with tips for achieving a great outcome on minimal funds.

Our panel of contemporary arts specialists focuses on critical writing. This talk explores the process for curators wishing to develop as writers on contemporary art for both print and online channels. The talk looks at which outlets curators can write for as well as tips for how to devise critical analysis of exhibitions and artists.
