FINA 224 Curatorial Practices

3 credits 67.5 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Curatorial Practice presents students with a structured introduction to exhibition development
and coordination, culminating in a collaboratively curated and installed exhibition
on the University campus or at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Starting with a thematic
seed, this course will engage students in the main elements of exhibition development:
curatorial conception, artist/work selection, acquisition of work, art handling and placement,
lighting, and installation, as well as coordination of didactic materials, press
releases, and marketing plans. Collaboration is a crucial element of this course. Students will
have the opportunity to choose artists and works that reflect their collective approach to the
presented theme, ultimately mounting an exhibition of their own devising. Studio and
gallery visits, as well as demonstrations by art professionals will address key aspects of the
exhibition and curatorial process.
