FT 552 — Museum Theory and Practices

3 credits; 2 lecture and 2 lab hours

This course is a curatorial workshop where students create virtual exhibitions, conceive of a theme, select objects and write all accompanying texts. They engage in peer and professional critiques of their projects. Through readings and discussions they examine museums as cultural institutions, considering issues that influence curatorial practices. During the final weeks student teams create proposals for the following year’s Fashion and Textile Studies exhibition at the Museum at FIT.
