The Curation Series

Started: June 19th 2021

3 episodes: 8 pm Zurich – Saturday June 19th, Tuesday June 29th, Friday July 9th

1. Understanding the Curator – June 19th 8pm CET

In the first part of the series we explored the history of curation, the role of the curator in museums/galleries/online, the skills and the experience required of a curator, and why are curatorial studies flourishing today. 

2. Copying the Curator – June 29th 8pm CET

In the second part of the series we looked at famous curators, favourite galleries and museums, and analyse the ways of curation from storytelling to the visual display of the objects/ideas. In this session we focused on aesthetics of perception, ways of transmitting knowledge visually, interdisciplinary thinking, and how can we learn from past exhibitions in order to create our own. 

3. Becoming the Curator – July 9th 8pm CET

In the third part of the series we will discussed AI and curation, the museums of the future, post-curation, anti-curation, and we embarked on a spontaneous personal curatorial journey in Kunsmatrix. We presented our curated virtual galleries to the group.
