The Curatorial School (28 August – 1 September 2017) is a one-week intensive lecture and workshop programme for students, emerging and established curators, practitioners and researchers. Meet, learn from and network with some of the world’s leading curators in the heart of Valletta, Malta: a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Presented by the Valletta 2018 Foundation and the University of Malta, the theme for this year’s Curatorial School is RESEARCHING CURATORIAL PRACTICES.
Attend the Curatorial School to further your career development through insightful lectures, workshops and professional networking opportunities. International guest speakers and workshop facilitators include Alfredo Cramerotti (57th Venice Biennale, Manifesta 8), Bassam El Baroni (Manifesta 8, HOME WORKS 7), Fulya Erdemci (54th Istanbul Biennial, 54th Venice Biennale, 2nd Moscow Contemporary Art Biennale, 25th Biennale São Paulo), Maren Richter (REGIONALE12 Biennal, MOCA Taipei), Mick Wilson (Moscow Curatorial School, 9th Taipei Biennal) and Sebastian Cichocki (Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, 52nd and 54th Venice Biennales).
By bringing together international and local perspectives, this year’s programme asks: What kinds of research do curators of contemporary art engage in? Participants are offered the opportunity to respond to tasks put forward by guest curators and receive extensive feedback on aspects of curating, researching, producing and presenting new ideas.
The Curatorial School is a Valletta 2018 project as part of the European Capital of Culture Programme.
