Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology offers a pathway in Curatorial Practices: Film, Media & Visual Arts. This is a two-year, full-time Masters programme designed to develop professional and academic excellence in the field of curating and to encourage students to curate projects and create a national and international network of peers and collaborators for their work.This specialisation is founded on the premise that there is no separation between practice and theory in curatorial work and that curators operate across a vast ecology of contexts and spaces, from the museum, to the commercial gallery, to the artist-led space, to the festival, to a lab, to new creative ventures. In today’s art world, the role of the curator often blends in with that of the artist, the publisher, the researcher, the archivist, and the creative entrepreneur. This programme responds to such interdisciplinarity by offering practice-led learning that combines the study of art history, aesthetics and exhibition histories with developing skills in critical writing and thinking, as well as project development and management. The students will explore the ethical, philosophical and political dimensions of current debates in contemporary art and culture, and will be encouraged to respond to the historical, political and cultural contexts of South Asia.The programme adopts the methodology of fine art practice and supports the development of an independent practice and research. It will offer a combination of taught seminars... [-]

THIS COURSE IN HELD IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

Today, curating contemporary art requires as many skills as there are artistic contexts and languages. Whereas a solid cultural background is as important as management and communication skills, what is even more crucial for a 21st Century Curator is to build a stable network of relationships to make a curatorial project tangible and widely expandable.

For this reason, thanks to the prestige and unique position of the city of Venice, participants have the opportunity to engage critically and actively in current debates in curatorial practice and contemporary art and to operate in the Biennale context, incubator for excellence and innovation. The course leads students to practically learn the job of a Curator in all its forms, also thanks to an international Faculty that includes some of the most prominent professionals of the art world. This way, participants get to know the curatorial methods that institutions such as Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Fondation Pinault, Fondazione La Biennale di Venezia and Christie's apply.... [-]
