Curating Art After New Media

9-15 February 2014

London, United Kingdom


"Curating Art After New Media" is an intensive week-long Professional Development Short Course, aimed at curators, exhibition organisers, educators and others working with contemporary art. The course will critically examine how contemporary curating can best match contemporary art practices, including practices that might be collaborative, or participatory. Since new media including social networking, augmented reality and open source have changed thinking on how art works in time and space, this course aims to update professional knowledge in the field. The local, national and international contexts of curating are rigourously examined.

Confirmed visits to discuss with curators at organisations include:

Design Museum - Curator - Permanent Collections Display.

Science Museum - Head of Media Space and Arts Programme.

Tate - Convenor (Young People's Programmes).

V&A - Senior Curator, Word and Image Department, and Digital Programmes Manager.

Wellcome Collection - Exhibitions Curator, Wellcome Collection.

The White Building and SPACE - Programming and Curatorial.

Furtherfield - Co-Director.

A maximum number of 12 persons will be accepted; registrations should be sent by December 13th, 2013. The Course fee is £950 plus VAT.
