Exhibition and Presentation Practice FFE234


Career options in curating, exhibition management and gallery administration are explored. The unit will teach the full range of theoretical and practical skills required by curators in the development of exhibition proposals for traditional gallery spaces and alternative ways to present art and art events. Practical weekend sessions assist students to gain gallery installation experience. This unit offers significant input from professionals in the field. Students are expected to be self-motivated and work towards developing a formal exhibition proposal to a standard required to secure funding.
