JCU Presents Four Student-Run Contemporary Art Exhibits

John Cabot University’s Department of Art History and Studio Art is pleased to present four contemporary art exhibitions curated by students of the course Curating Museums and Galleries taught by Professor Ilaria Gianni.

During the semester the students had the chance to learn the foundations of contemporary museum studies, study the brief history of curating, and be confronted with the contemporary art scene in Rome. The course’s challenge was to put theory into practice and work on a real show. The students developed a reasoned exhibition proposal in dialogue with Rome-based artists, and came face to face with curatorial practicalities.

Four different elaborate group shows conceived, initiated and presented by four groups of students developed articulate exhibition projects, showcasing a variety of interesting emergent contemporary art practices and generating innovative curatorial discourses.

Curating Museums and Galleries wishes to thank the online gallery Asa Nisi Masa (www.anmgallery.com) for its collaboration and precious support of the project.
