phase 1. Curatorial-Intensive



30 July - 6 August 2012
(6 working days)


As an introduction to curatorial practice, the Curatorial-Intensive will consist of lectures, tutorials, and exhibition visits. Participants are to recognize fluidity of curatorial perspectives, informed by the dynamics between curators, artists, objects, institutions and their contexts. The workshop will emphasize discussions and dialogue, where tutorials will be complemented by journal writing and presentations.

Learning Objectives

Lectures conducted during the curatorial intensive will cover aspects of contemporary curating, where relevant, referenced to projects completed by the lecturers and their conceptual frameworks. Participants are expected to complete related readings assigned, and to actively participate in discussions during tutorials. Aspects of contemporary curating are as follows:
  • (Re)Working the Canon: Curators and Institutions
  • Positions and Repositionings: Writing Asia
  • Art/Politics/Activism: Curating with a Cause?
  • Artist/Curator: Collaborations and Resistance
