An online Course by Node Center

This Course will explore interesting strategies in exhibition-making and ways of thinking about curating by sharing a wide variety of innovative curatorial approaches that are designed to inspire. 'Expanding Exhibitions' is for emerging and established curators who want to open up ways of thinking about their practice from the white cube and beyond.

This Course will track significant moments in curatorial history and stimulating case studies, but rather than covering the field chronologically, it will instead focus on key themes and debates within exhibition-making such as the role of the curator, working with time-based media, exhibiting outside the art space and thinking globally. It will cross both inventive exhibition strategies as well as curatorial ethics that will provide opportunity for lively debate and the sharing of ideas between each other each week.
