Eyebeam Summer School: Curatorial Masterclass
An initiative of Eyebeam’s Summer School program, the Curatorial Masterclass was led by Eyebeam research partner Sarah Cook from CRUMB, the online resource for curators working with media art. The series provided an opportunity for emerging and established curators of art to get together within a focused period of time to learn from each other’s practice, and to develop a greater understanding of curating, open source methods, and working in the public domain.
The first hour of each day was structured as a formal conversation modeled on CRUMB’s tea-time chats, and featured established curators and artists. The second hour was a rigorous participant driven discussion that built upon the first hours of themes and insights. Following each presentation and workshop, participants had the opportunity to stick around for beer o’clock and conversation with presenters and fellow masterclass participants, as well as participants from other Eyebeam Summer School programs.
Lead Tutors and Program Management: Amanda McDonald Crowley, Anne Barlow, Dominic Smith, Fred Benenson, Hans Bernhard, Lize Mogel, Patrick Lichty, Rebecca Cittadini, Sarah Cook, Scott Burnham, Stephanie Pereira, Stephen Duncombe, Steve Dietz, Steve Lambert, Taeyoon Choi.
