In March, Frédérique Bergholtz and Tanja Baudoin are present at DAI to discuss the exhibition project with the students. Following a group session, the students brainstorm on their ideas and make an agenda for the coming meetings. In extensive face to face meetings each student’s plans for new work are discussed.
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.
