Gallery Studies

Overview

Gallery Studies

What is the origin of collecting works of art? Why do we collect? What purpose do galleries and museums serve? Why is a particular work placed in a specific location, at a measured height and in relation to the works surrounding it? What is the future of collecting and museums? What does the artist have to do with any of this?

Learn the answers to all the questions above in Art 12, where every aspect of putting together an art exhibition, from conception to deinstallation will be covered.

Museum and gallery work is collaborative – a team effort. Art 12 students will collectively curate an exhibition, guided by the LBCC gallery director. Selection of artists and artworks specifically with the LBCC Art Gallery in mind will be made. Students will produce a model out of foamcore and another in Sketchup in which to complete their layout designs. Art handling, installation techniques, lighting, announcement design and hosting a reception will be covered. Artist’s studio, gallery and museum visits are an integral component of Art 12.
