'Expanding Exhibitions: Innovative Approaches to Curating'
Online Course by Node Center

In support of our community and art professionals during the global outbreak of COVID-19, we are offering a 20% discount on all of our courses. Discount code: #stayathome


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 focus on key themes and debates within exhibition-making such as the role of the curator, boundary-pushing curatorial concepts, exhibiting outside the art space and working with other disciplines. It will cross both inventive exhibition strategies as well as curatorial critique that will provide opportunity for lively debate and the sharing of ideas between each other each week.

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