NEW APPROACHES TO CURATING COLLECTIONS
An Online Course by Node Center



This course will offer fresh approaches for curators and arts workers looking to further their practice working with collections. Whether dealing with commercial stockrooms, artist collections, permanent museum collections or more, curators must find ways to reinterpret and approach the same items over again and creatively engage audiences.

New Approaches to Curating Collections will provide a foundational knowledge of collections and the many forms that they take. By presenting an overarching framework for collection histories, models, and ethics, we will establish a broad understanding of the challenges behind curating collections. Over four weeks, we will explore real world case studies to discover fresh perspectives on how to curate, interpret, develop, conserve, and fund collections.

Participants will have the opportunity to write an exhibition proposal for a collection of their choice. Throughout the course, participants will develop transferable skills to think critically about the cultural values of a collection and creatively interpret collections across a variety of settings in cultural institutions and fine art contexts.


*Video conferences every Monday at 7pm CET. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!
