Curatorial Intensive Moscow 2014

Aug 3 – 9, 2014

Moscow, Russia
Garage Museum of Contemporary Art

Moscow, Russia

In collaboration with Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, ICI announced the Curatorial Intensive: Developing Infrastructures for Art. This short-course training program examined curatorial strategies for creatively building frameworks for art — from small-scale collaborative projects to new museums — that respond to the changing needs of artists and new art publics.

The program looked at the challenges that arise for curators working in regions with emerging contemporary art cultures and in institutions in the early stages of development. The Curatorial Intensive presented a range of examples of progressive institutions of different scales and explore the potential for responding to the social and political contexts from which they arise. The weeklong program addressed the challenges of generating programs, fundraising, building audiences, and considering the shape an institution takes.
