Node Center’s Online Program offers those interested in contemporary art practices the opportunity to extend their experience in an internationally oriented e-learning program. The Virtual Learning Environment facilitates rich interaction through multimedia material, weekly video-conferences, practical exercises and personal feedback from the lecturers.
This weekly seminar Curatorial procedures: contracts, loans and official documents is intended to familiarize young curators with some of the most common contracts and forms used when assembling exhibitions – customs declarations/pro-forma invoices, gallery consignments, and museum/biennale loan agreements. The course is an ideal primer for anyone looking to found their own project space or who is making their initial exhibitions as an independent curator. The course will supply a number of examples, going over each one in detail, as well as draw from recent texts and periodical articles that highlight the ramifications for such documents in contemporary art.
