Session with first year participants of the MA Curatorial Practice at the California College of the Arts (CCA), San Francisco, 8 September
On Tuesday 8 September we led a 3h session with the participants of the first year of the MA in Curatorial Practice at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco. This was our last day as residents at the Kadist Art Foundation.
As a mode of introduction we presented a range of projects we have worked on and referred to the closed-door seminar ‘The Near-Future Artworlds Curatorial Disruption Foresight Group’, we had led a week earlier with the participation of colleagues and art professionals – an informal dialogue about the future of contemporary art institutions, and more particularly concerned with programming speeds, institutional scale and periodicity.
For the second part of the evening we split the group in three and asked them to prepare descriptions of hypothetical art organisations and to reflect on urban/non urban contexts and mission statements.
