Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Curatorial Practice

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Over the last 20 years, curatorial studies have focused on the role of the curator in shaping relationships among artists, artworks, exhibition spaces, and audiences, and the exhibition as the preeminent forum for presenting and analyzing artistic developments. The first of its kind on the West Coast, CCA’s Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice seeks to explore collaborative, artist-led, and other curatorial initiatives that challenge and advance existing paradigms of exhibition making. Reflecting San Francisco's geographic location and cultural histories, the program also emphasizes curatorial and art practices in Asia and Latin America.


CCA is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
