Call for applications: EXHIBITIONS. Curatorship, Design and Spaces

From 12 February to 24 July 2021. 

Open admissionuntil all places are filled. 

EXHIBITIONS is a postgraduate diploma that offers specialisation in the design and creation of new exhibition formats and contents. From a temporary perspective, it reviews, takes an in-depth look and renews the different elements inherent to it, such as curating exhibitions, the creation of temporary experiences, the establishment of spaces for interaction and the configuration of new audiences.

Thinking, creating and innovating in the area of exhibitions is becoming increasingly more a task of managing complexities and transdisciplinary confluence. Curation based on the selection, organisation and thematisation of contents; design and art as creative practices that generate and transform spaces; interaction, mediation and communication to activate other audiences; these are all elements that need to be interrelated to seek innovative approaches in the configuration, presentation and activation of cultural proposals. We are in the midst of significant changes in the organisation of work processes in such a way that relationship networks and collaborative action practices are transforming the production of cultural meaning. From this perspective, the programme sees itself as an action platform based on research, dialogue, experimentation and critical thought for it to have a practical impact on the new trends in exhibition design and temporary spaces, interactive experimentation, and the hybrid configurations that permit the more traditional exhibition space to be transcended. It is a platform that is fed by the learning generated on the basis of the transversal convergence between curating professionals, art, design and architecture, and other areas of the humanities or sciences, which become inspirational while generating contents and different ways of communicating them.

EXHIBITIONS features the collaboration of the Museu del Disseny de Barcelona, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) and the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB). All these institutions work in a different way on exhibition programming and are taking part in the postgraduate course by contributing to the proposal of a place for research and experimentation around the creation of temporary spaces, exhibition experiences, the configuration of contents and the establishment of new audiences.

EXHIBITIONS, the postgraduate diploma in Curatorship, Design and Spaces rolls out a programme divided into four sections: Research Seminars, Case Studies, Talks and Final Project.

Blended learning mode: 

February to June 2021: online. 

For three weeks in July 2021: onsite* in Barcelona. 

* If you are unable to travel to and stay in Barcelona for justified reasons or if the pandemic situation prevents it, this mode will be adapted to online.
