Beschreibung • Description

If you are an artist or a curator and are planning to organize an exhibition, this workshop will give you an essential guide on how to conceive a successful art show. Indeed curating an exhibition, from conception to launch requires several skills: coordination & management, marketing and communication.

We will analyze topics such as the exhibition concept; artwork statement, exhibition sheet with image credits, artist names, exhibition title, and text; press release; creating a facebook event. We will also look at areas of work such as: how to find a gallery, working as a curator for a gallery, communication between artist and gallerist, and liaison with the gallerist.

In this 8 hour workshop, I will give you a full-practical-insight into the strategies of curating, drawing on my own experience as an independent curator in contemporary art.
