Learning outcomes
This study subject focuses on the various aspects associated with the complex issues of presentation of an artwork in the gallery but also non-gallery environment in the context of the contemporary art. The process of presentation of an artwork is the key moment of curatorial work and currently, it is undergoing significant development. As the determining theme, the course accentuates the multidirectional process of communication between the author, his/her work, the curator, the exhibition institution and the public. It observes the process of contextualization of an artwork by means of publishing it and placing it in the specific environment of an exhibition or an exhibition institution. It deals with issues related to the interpretation of an artwork via its installation and exhibition presentation. It works with themes following the socialization and community strategies in contemporary art and also refers to the issue of the crisis of exhibition institutions and the so-called institutional critique. Topics of individual lectures: 1. The author and his/her work - the phenomenon of authorship, the author's death, collective authorship, anonymous authorship 2. Space and boundaries of an artwork - between the picture and the trip to the Moon 3. Exposition of an artwork - between the studio, the gallery and the living room 4. Forms of an artwork - from the artistic aura to the artwork as part of the community life 5. Artwork and exhibition - strategies for presentation of the artwork 6. Changes in the institutional strategies - from the salon to the interactive space 7. Work in the public space - democratization of the artistic discourse 8. Criticism of institutions - freedom of art, limits of its presentation 9. Curatorial archive - strategy of curatorial research 10. Adventure of interpretation - freedom and limits of curatorial work 11. Power of the audience - expectations and possibilities of meeting them 12. Guided discussion with a contemporary visual artist 13. Guided discussion focused on a joint curatorial project for Galerie Rampa and an accompanying student conference The course also includes a workshop with a foreign external curator and a joint curatorial project by students in the Galerie Rampa, accompanied by a student conference. Both the curatorial concept and the conference deal with a common theme emerging from the guided discussion between students and the tutor of the course.
