Publisher's description: Almost 30 years after the founding of the first curatorial studies program (at the Ecole du Magasin, Grenoble), with the curator remaining a figure of curiosity and fascination in the contemporary art world, a new question has emerged: how do we educate curators? Great Expectations: Prospects for the Future of Curatorial Education explores this question, focusing in particular on the challenges, opportunities and subjects that motivate educators and students. How has curatorial education changed in the past 25 years, and what will the next 25 years bring? The product of a spring 2015 conference at the California College of the Arts, this volume, edited by Leigh Markopoulos, brings together contributions from Mark Beasley, Maeve Connolly, Maria del Carmen Carrion, Kit Hammonds, Matthew Higgs, Anthony Huberman, Prem Krishnamurthy, Mami Kataoka, Kristina Lee Podesva, Salwa Mikdadi, Julian Myers-Szupinska and Ulay, among others.
