Subject: Hampshire / Institute for Curatorial Practice / Summer 2015
|Dear colleagues,As you advise students in the coming weeks, I hope that you will share the news of our summer program in curatorial studies at Hampshire with any students or former students who you think would be interested! I’ll be directing the program again this coming summer alongside: Christoph Cox, Professor of Philosophy at Hampshire, international curator of contemporary sound art, and faculty at the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies; Anna Schrade, Visiting Assistant Professor of Cultural Studies and Curator at the Iwalewa-Haus, Museum of Contemporary Africa Art at the University of Bayreuth, Germany; John Stomberg, Director, Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, and Jocelyn Edens, Kress Curatorial Fellow in Digital Curation.
Our program includes an emphasis on digital and new media practices alongside the history of museums and collection, curatorial theory, and direct object study in the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, the Smith College Museum of Art and the University Museum of Contemporary Art at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. In addition to students in art history, public history, digital humanities and museum studies, our emphasis on new media platforms and alternative arts spaces will make this program of interest to students in the studio art, architecture, film and design.
We are please to announce that with funding from the Kress Foundation and Mellon Digital Humanities Grant from Five Colleges, Inc., that we are able to offer eight competitive, paid internships to students who attend the ICP to work with directors and curators in our five college museums and collections.
