Curating the Collection

September 06, 2012 to May 25, 2013

Curating the Collection is a new series of exhibitions in collaboration with the Kadist Art Foundation, San Francisco and the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice. Using the Kadist Art Foundation's collection as a starting point, each student will organize an exhibition which examines a specific nuance within collection curating. Each exhibition will be displayed for approximately one month on CCA's San Francisco campus.

The display for Curating the Collection is a culmination of a course led by Wattis Director Jens Hoffmann which focuses on both practical and conceptual approaches for creating and maintaining a collection. Curating the Collection aims to extend and develop the dialogue, expertise and scholarship within collection display.
