Programme Synopsis A curator’s job is more than just hanging artworks on a wall. There is so much more that goes on behind the scenes with an exhibition that is also the responsibility of a curator. This workshop imparts the fundamentals of exhibition making and curating. Students will get to have a hands-on experience in creating an exhibition to realise a curatorial vision. They will get to understand how art experiences can inspire and how exhibition making requires the incorporation of aesthetics together with storytelling. This program will guide students into conceptualising, developing and executing their own exhibitions using an array of artworks and artefacts. Through this process they will also be honing some management skills - putting together a timeline and budget for the development of their project. In curating the exhibition, they will also develop empathy to understand how to create a user-centric experience. The exhibition that the students will be guided to create can exist in an online space, a 3D model or an actual physical space. As an option, students can embark on a field trip to visit exhibitions and also have conversations with practising curators & exhibition managers.
