Offered once a year. Students will have the unique opportunity to assist in the planning and implementation of an exhibition that will be held from late October to early December in the Frick Fine Arts Building’s gallery space. The exhibition will feature the artist Martin Creed and engage students in the installation of site-specific works. There will also be broad emphasis placed on museum studies and curatorial discourse so that students may gain a full understanding of the many facets of successful exhibition planning, design and implementation. In addition to helping to organize and install the exhibition, students will be expected to participate in class discussions based on weekly readings, attend several required fieldtrips to local museums, and submit a final portfolio of pieces created during the class. Beyond the usual course workload, this seminar requires a significant commitment of time outside of class including team meetings, installation, and de-installation responsibilities. This class is taught by Nicholas Chambers, the Milton Fine Curator of Art at The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh.
