563 Curatorial Training

 

This introductory course is designed to expose students to the range of practical and theoretical concerns that define the curatorial profession. Based at the Zimmerli Art Museum, and drawing on the professional expertise of its curators and staff from registrars to preparation and installation crew, we will address topics from connoisseurship and object based research to housing and installation. Other subjects examined during the course include acquisitions, cataloquing, and collection care as well as exhibition planning and budgeting. Some sessions will be held at other local museums and collections (in the NYC/Philadelphia area). Museum trips, all of which will take place on Thursday mornings, are mandatory and I will make every effort to schedule these to suit everyone’s needs.
