What kinds of things do we see when we look at art? What happens when we look for longer? When we curate, what connections do we want to invite our audience to make? The teams looked at works in the collection to practice analysing, interpreting and sharing opinions.
Next it was time to apply those skills to a curation challenge: could the teams select artworks which would work well together? What characteristics would they choose to look for?
How would they help their audience see connections between the works?
And how would they display the works in a given space?
The teams worked really well together, solving problems, presenting their work to the other groups, and giving constructive feedback. A great start to the course.
