AT THE 17th ARCHITECTURE VENICE BIENNALE SUMMER SCHOOL IN CURATORIAL STUDIES VENICE OPEN CALL

3rd
June – 1st September 2020

The School
for Curatorial Studies is an ambitious and challenging project promoted since
2004 and conceived as a school committed to experimentation and
interdisciplinary thinking. The main goals are to spread the knowledge in the
field of visual arts and to introduce the students to the professions related
to the art world, focusing on contemporary curatorial theory and practice and
contemporary museology. The School’s activities are meant for all those
interested and passionate in art, graduated students or professionals who want
to deepen their knowledge and improve their practical skills. The School’s
teaching staff is formed by Italian and international professionals, scholars,
historians and art critics of recognized experience. Among them: Matt Williams
(curator), Filippo Lotti (Sotheby’s), Chiara Barbieri (Peggy Guggenheim
Collection), Francesca Colasante (Pinault Collection), Andrea Goffo (Found.
Prada), Nicola Lees (Serpentine London).

The
program:

The
Summer School in Curatorial Practice will take place during the 17th
International Architecture Biennale Venice. With an interdisciplinary approach,
the course provides practical training and experience within museums and
exhibition settings. Its international faculty includes curators and museum
professionals, artists and critics. The course is designed to increase students
understanding of the intellectual and technical tasks of the curator figure.
English-taught lectures cover both theoretical and practical topics that go
from the history of contemporary visual arts and practices of exhibition-making,
to Exhibition Management. The students will participate in weekly activities,
such as artist studio visits, tours of exhibition spaces, networking events and
workshops. The program culminates with the set up of the exhibition.

The Summer
School includes visits of specific art venues all over the city of Venice
during the 17th International Architecture Venice Biennale. A series
of selected case studies will offer the students an opportunity to observe the
development of contemporary art. The School’s goal is to align these specific
theoretical lectures with a practical approach. Besides the theoretical
lectures, a series of laboratories and workshops aims to introduce the students
to the work of critical text writing, press releases and to structure all the
different aspects of publishing. The students will be offered the possibility
of a gallery training and of setting up together - with one of our tutors,
their exhibition in Venice, as a final project of the course.
