CS200 - Curatorial Projects
Curatorial Projects is designed to offer students insight into curatorial work using Moore's Galleries as a case study. The course will begin by offering students an overview of how the Gallery Director conceived of, planned, and implemented an exhibition in one of Moore's Galleries. Students will then research and develop proposals for public outreach materials related to upcoming fall exhibitions scheduled at Moore, including the Visionary Woman Award show. Students will conduct research about artists and their work, develop a comprehensive bibliography, and (when possible) interview artists directly in order to propose ways to engage audiences, with an emphasis on Moore students, in gallery activities. Related classroom readings will focus on the larger processes and issues involved in planning and implementing exhibitions. The semester will culminate in an individual or small-group collaborative project in which students develop proposals for virtual exhibitions that are each designed for one of the gallery spaces at Moore. Students will work on developing an exhibition idea and using on-line space planning programs to address layout and design geared to potentially installing this idea in specific spaces at Moore. Based on the scope of a student's project or level of study there may be additional costs for materials and supplies.
