Course unit contents: The laboratory is the result of the collaboration of the Department of Cultural Heritage: Archeology, History of Art, Cinema and Music of the University of Padua with the Department of Youth Policies - Youth Project Office of the Municipality of Padua.
The laboratory will engage student in the role of curator of an artist's solo exhibition. The starting group activities, to be held in June 2020, will present the various problems related to the curating of a contemporary art exhibition. Around the middle of September 2020, two more group activities will follow.
The topics of the workshop are:

• what does curating an exhibition mean?
• the relationship with the artist
• the relationship with space
• setting up work
• writing a press release
• writing a critical presentation text
• editing the bio-bibliographical apparatus
• photographic reproduction of the work
• promotion of the event
• the "great evening" of the vernissage
• publication of the catalog
• the relationship with institutions
• brief history of the curating art exhibitions
• experiences of public policies for contemporary arts
• creativity / territory relationship

Each student will receive the task of collaborating as a curator with a different artist, selected by the Youth Project Office among the members of the Paduan Archive of the Association for the Young Italian Artists Circuit. Each curator / artist couple will have to carry out an exhibition in the autumn of 2020, with which the activity of the laboratory will end.
The student will follow and support the artist in the projection and realization of the exhibition, following him in all phases: from the first inspection to the inauguration, up to the disassembly. Furthermore, the student will curate the drafting of the press release, the critical presentation text and the bio-bibliographical apparatus.

The workshop program, with the exact dates of the activities and exhibitions will be released in May 2020 via Moodle and Dams and Bc newsletters.
