Special Project

30 points



The Special Project allows students to explore a topic associated with art curatorship in depth while working under the guidance of a member of academic staff. Students are encouraged to develop a topic that relates to their areas of particular interest in the field. Projects can range from a research essay exploring some aspect of curatorial practice, the history of display associated with a major artefact, or the impact of an important exhibition on curatorial practice, to the curation of a virtual exhibition. Students developing an exhibition project are expected to define a theme, make a selection of works to be included, write catalogue entries and a catalogue essay and develop a plan for the arrangement of works in the exhibition.
