Curatorial Studies

Are you skillful at seeing the big picture? Much like a film director, the job of a curator involves creating a story through multitasking, attention to detail, organization, and the vision to join all the parts in a meaningful way. The BFA in curatorial studies introduces students to the creative, educational, and professional aspects of what curators do. Students visit and explore a variety of collections and exhibitions and study the layered experience of viewing and the dynamics of spectatorship. They also examine the groundbreaking work of artists whose responses to these issues have become the essence of their art practice. Students examine the theories and practice involved in conceiving, creating and designing exhibitions, collections and archives.​ Read more about the major.
