Curating Art & Fashion
Art master’s degree courses from Istituto Marangoni offer two alternatives for specialisation to prepare students to enter the world of work in the art field, the more managerial side and also curatorship, dedicated to those students who want to develop a professional profile linked to the design and creation of exhibitions and cultural events with the course in Curating Art & Fashion.
The Master’s Degree in Curating Art & Fashion is the course where the DNA of IM and lengthy experience in the fashion business are blended together with a passion for art to create a unique learning path. The programme in fact aims to develop a new relationship between art and fashion using a brand new way of comparing the different areas that curatorship has within these worlds.
Founded as part of the visual arts, as a means to construct critical and theoretical reflection using the object on show, the task of the curator has been profoundly transformed, allowing itself to become seduced by the charm of its own application to other sectors, such as fashion and design. From the 1990s, the moment in which a new way of understanding fashion, the two areas saw an overlap between them in a partnership that is now a new and appealing challenge for the art world. Record numbers achieved by recent shows dedicated to giants in the fashion world show the ability of this sector to reach a vast and varied public, even when it leaves behind the display cases and windows to enter the rooms of that sacred temple of art: the museum. Entering this context means following precise rules and accepting the dimensions that are so dear to the art world.
Aimed at students who already have a degree or proven career experience in this field, the Masters in Curating Art & Fashion offers a path through completely unexplored territory, where curatorship is being looked at in every aspect of its identity - curating an exhibition means taking care of a whole range of conceptual and organisational aspects regarding an exhibition project: content, layout, coordination, promotion, financial management - and its current declination between art and fashion.
