Collecting Contemporary Photography
The students in this course will participate in the selection of contemporary photography, film, and video art for the Middlebury College Museum of Art. We will engage in ongoing independent research, make PowerPoint presentations on numerous artists, post our research on a class website, and evaluate works under consideration, explaining the basis for their recommendations. The selection process involves readings, interviews of artists and dealers, and collaboration on class and public presentations. In conjunction with the course work there will be a required class trip to New York museums and galleries. (Approval required; please contact the instructor via email, email@example.com).
