California College of the Arts San Francisco Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice

California College of the Arts (CCA)
Students from CCA’s Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice at the Center for Land Use Interpretation’s outpost in Wendover, Utah

Central to the philosophy of the program is the development of curriculum with faculty who are active professionals. Core instructors include curators, art historians, and other arts professionals from prominent institutions throughout the Bay Area. More than 170 curators, critics, scholars, and artists from around the world have taught courses since the program was launched. Through critical examination of these visitors’ wide-ranging practices, students learn the intellectual and practical premises of current curatorial strategies and become familiar with diverse cultural, political, and institutional contexts for the exhibition of art.

The Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice, in collaboration with the CCA Wattis Institute and the 101/Artnow Collection, supports a paid, postgraduate curatorial research fellowship. It is available to a graduating student for nine months immediately following the completion of his or her degree on a one-time basis. In addition to regular curatorial duties at the CCA Wattis Institute, the fellow also organizes an exhibition of works from the 101 Collection and proposes works for acquisition.

• Undergraduate degree in the history of art, fine art, or other appropriate area of the humanities or social sciences
• Relevant practical experience in the visual arts and a demonstrated commitment to curating
