Elective Art Curating Internship (ARHT6942)


The elective internship for Art Curating students is a project-based placement of 20 days minimum in an art gallery, museum or appropriate art organisation in Sydney, Australia or overseas. Internships invite critical reflection on art curatorial practice, foster the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills, and enhance students' employment prospects in the sector. Projects are supervised by a professional from the host institution and focus on specific areas of work eg. curatorial or collection research, exhibition development and installation, public programs or registration.
