Institute for Curatorial Research & Practice: Current Season
This fall the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) launches the Institute for Curatorial Research & Practice—an incubator for creative inquiry into the processes undertaken by curators aimed to foster advanced thinking in the field.
Micaela Martegani has been working in the field of modern and contemporary art as an art historian, writer, and curator since 1990. In 2004, Martegani founded the nonprofit organization More Art devoted to community-based and socially engaged public art projects, as a way to help make contemporary art more accessible to the general public.
Tone Olaf Nielsen is a Copenhagen-based independent curator, activist, and educator, whose practice is based on a firm belief in the ability of artistic and curatorial work to contribute to social and political transformation. In 2009, Nielsen partnered with artist Morten Goll to found the Trampoline House, a community center in Copenhagen that offers counseling, education, and community to asylum seekers and refugees.
Carmen Mörsch’s research interests include the history and present of artists in museum and gallery education as well as artists in schools; collaborative and transformative practices in art and education; art education and queer/postcolonial theory. Between 2003 and today she conducted several team-based, action-research and development projects, such as for the German Ministry of Research and Education and for the Documenta 12 education program.
