Spend two weeks in London and explore how art and fashion co-mingle in the city’s innovative arts and culture programming! Students will visit private collections, heritage sites, small museums and galleries, as well as major museums and arts centers. Participants will meet curators and programmers; analyze and critique exhibitions; and engage in discussions about the motivations and goals that shape contemporary strategies of visual presentation. Throughout, students are asked to contextualize the thinking behind curatorial presentations, within the exhibition itself and within London–a global hub of politics and finance, where the popular is celebrated alongside the traditional and where class structures and immigration patterns map onto the city’s geography and shape its daily life.
