The Department of Exhibition and Performance Spaces (DEPS) is dedicated to the College's mission to develop and showcase student bodies of work by providing hands-on experience with all aspects of the exhibition process. Students can submit artwork for exhibitions, assist with gallery installations, work with visiting artists, attend workshops and panel discussions, apply for employment opportunities and curate exhibitions.
Curating exhibitions is a learning experience that provides students the opportunities to develop their curatorial voice through the process of choosing artwork and designing an installation to communicate a vision. It provides a unique perspective into the exhibition planning process. Curating allows students to voice what type of art they would like to see, what issues they would like discussed and what installation designs they would like to explore.
A Student Curatorial Guide is available for to provide more information about curating from the student perspective, below are personal interviews with past student curators:
