Module overview

The module is designed to introduce you in more detail to contemporary practices, and in turn the practical consideration, of curation today. Drawing on lectures, seminars, tutorials, and visits to world-leading professional arts organisations, this module helps you develop your critical analytical skills alongside practical experiments in the art of exhibition formation in all its variety of tasks and concepts. Continuing to explore the themes, theories, debates, and histories from Semester 1, this practical module involves an interim group exhibition project offering you the first opportunity to test the attainment of the Learning Outcomes via professional experience of curation in and around the Winchester campus. This module provides you with the chance to learn first-hand from professionals in the curatorial field about the challenges and opportunities curation presents today. You will experience what it is like to curate as part of a group and will have your first chance to devise and realise an exhibitionary project from start to finish.
