From the publishers’ webpage:

“Unconscious Informing” – For over twenty years, the curator Alfredo Cramerotti (b. Trento, Italy, 1967; lives and works in Llandudno, Wales) has built an extensive collection of visual materials divided into multiple categories. Newspaper clippings, postcards, drawings, flyers, articles, advertisements, other media materials: Cramerotti finds something of interest wherever he looks. He clusters and collages his finds along five independent thematic foci: design approach, alpine culture, leadership, houseplants, and the gaze. Cramerotti’s interest in creating a system of order and reference takes inspiration from the work of Aby Warburg. He uses his collection of imagery to study formal principles of commercial visual culture, adding ironic observations and drawing connections to media trends. With an essay by the curator.

Goldsmiths Department of Art and the British School at Rome are pleased to announce the 2019 Curatorial Summer School entitled ‘Curating the Contemporary’

This Summer School is now in its third year and is aimed at those who are interested in the professional field of curating. This will take place in July 2019 at the prestigious British School at Rome. We are looking for entrants from a mix of backgrounds but particularly graduates and artists who are considering working in curating as well as established curators who want to think and talk about the challenges and opportunities that face curators in the contemporary moment.

The course will provide you with an opportunity to engage intensively with the activity of curating contemporary art, one that produces exhibitions and events within an expanded field that includes commercial and public galleries, museums and foundations, but also public spaces and social contexts. It will investigate various modes of curating contemporary art, as well as in the expanded sense of the philosophical idea of the curatorial as it is currently discussed in the field.

Please note that this is a two week course taking place from Monday 1 – 15 July 2019.
