In the first meeting in Arnhem with Grant Watson and Frédérique Bergholtz, we will continue the discussion started during last month’s trip to Liverpool and ask all the students to share their current work in a 10 minute presentation to start collectively mapping the divergent practices of the group. We will then break up and come back to discuss together what we’ve heard, what are possible strands or themes – as a first impression of where we are at the moment.
Curating Academy is a yearlong course offered to second-year students of the Dutch Art Institute, that is taught by Grant Watson and Frédérique Bergholtz and coordinated by Tanja Baudoin. The course looks into methodologies of curating and closely studies examples from the practice of tutors and guests. The project will work towards making an exhibition for September 2013, with a contribution by each student. In monthly meetings, tutors and guests will unpack the nature of the ‘graduation exhibition’ and explore ways of working and presenting together.
