Curating and Education

Moore College of Art & Design

20th and The Parkway

Philadelphia, PA 19103

The Galleries at Moore in conjunction with Moore College of Art and Design’s new BFA in Curatorial Studies present Curating and Education the second in an ongoing series of public conversations about issues and ideas in contemporary curatorial practice. Through a series of paired conversations with an international roster of distinguished panelists, we will discuss the creative nexus between curating and education. Questions to be considered include: What do the growing number of projects in which curators are creating educational forums as exhibitions suggest about opening up the creative exchange between curating and education? Given the institutional hierarchies that often impede creative collaboration between curators and educators, how can curating and education work together as powerful laboratories for the production of ideas? What is at stake and what is possible?
