Online Course

An online intensive program for early-career Arab curators exploring a curatorial career in the G.C.C. region.

Language: English 

Misk Art Institute is calling for applications to its 2022 Curatorial Collective Course, guided by the curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented. 

The program is a ten-week virtual course tailored to early-career curators in the G.C.C. region looking to pursue a professional career in curating. Bardaouil and Fellrath will conduct two of the sessions while the remaining sessions will be offered by leading curators and institutional directors, all experts in their respective fields, examining a wide range of approaches to curating, as well as the fundamental steps of constructing an exhibition. Practical emphasis will be given to exploring the various career paths of a curator from an institutional to a non-institutional model. 

Each week one lecturer will discuss a specific topic that is relevant to curators based in the G.C.C. such as the role of an artist vs. a curator, perception and representation of artists from the Arab world, the advantages and challenges of curating within different institutional structure, tackling questions of otherness within mechanisms of exhibition making, and the role of academic research in the curatorial process. 

Each session is followed by a one-on-one critique between the participants and the lecturer to provide insight and advice on the participants’ proposals. 
The course objective is for each participant to develop an exhibition proposal, illustrating a profound grasp of the theoretical and practical aspects of exhibition making.
