I am a member of the Center for Curatorial Leadership/Andrew W. Mellon Seminar in Curatorial Practice Class of 2016. See program description below and photos by Center for Curatorial Leadership/Isaac James documenting our visit with Richard Aste at the Brooklyn Museum. More info about the CCL/Mellon Seminar here.
The CCL/Mellon Seminar in Curatorial Practice provides art history Ph.D. students in all fields of specialty with an in-depth introduction to working in museums. The two-week intensive combines exhibition and collection tours, conversations with curators and cultural leaders, and group exercises at New York City institutions. With support from a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Seminar provides a critical training opportunity for emerging curatorial professionals. Twelve to fifteen students annually receive the extraordinary opportunity to observe, analyze, and engage in the critical responsibilities of museums through a range of institutional contexts.
