World of Art | School for Curatorial Practices and Critical Writing | Year 16
In a series of meetings with curator Vladimir Vidmar the participants will get introduced to curatorial work in practice. In particular, we will investigate how the curator designs and plans the exhibition, what is exhibition’s starting point, and how does one develop the concept. What is the basic building cell of the exhibition and its concept and how does it develop during the process?
Furthermore, we are interested in how the curatorial research happens in practice. How do we undertake research and how do we gather information? Do we start from a conversation with the artist, a studio visit, an exhibition visit or a known work of art? Do we browse the internet, online databases, libraries and archives? What are the research methods and how does a curatorial team work?
