Welcome to Curating Exhibits & Archives


“Curating, after all, produces ephemeral constellations that disappear, and, as a consequence, there are no memories of curating.” — Hans Ulrich Obrist, 2007

This course focuses on the development, organizing, and mounting of exhibits. Students in this course will work on two specific shows: Game Changers video game exhibit to be held during the month of March in downtown Vancouver and a special exhibit of media art ephemera for the ELO 2016 Conference & Media Art Festival taking place at the University of Victoria from 10-12 June 2016.

Students in the class will also gain background in theories relating to curating and come to understand it as a critical practice.
