Graduate Projects in Visual Arts Administration: The New Art World: Biennials, Periodic Art Exhibitions, Art Fairs, and the Contemporary World

This course will investigate the current state of Contemporary Art & how it has come to be shaped by the growing importance of biennials, triennials, & other timed exhibitions as well as the increasing influence of art fairs around the globe.It will show how the evolution of these major international exhibitions & fairs has gradually changed the function & relative emphasis of galleries & museums , critics & curators, art dealers & auction houses, at a time when there are more artists, galleries & collectors than ever before.On-line & off-line exhibition & sales, now in the very early stages, will also factor into the discussion of the rapidly changing art world of the 21st century.Biennial curators, art fair organizers, critics & artists will be invited as guest lecturers to offer their viewpoints on the current state of the arts.
