This two-day course will introduce participants to the key concepts of exhibition-making and curatorial principles as applied to design. It will include examples of display strategies from architecture, product and furniture design and fashion. An overview of exhibition histories and the evolution of display practices through to object-based research and storytelling will embed participants in curatorial thinking. The course will combine lectures and workshop exercises which will encourage an active engagement in the processes of curatorial work. These processes include object-based research, collection and care, through to experimental cultural interventions, both inside and outside the museum or gallery space.
A basic list will be sent to you a week in advance of the course start date. All other materials are provided by Kingston School of Art (KSA)
