PAP 230 PORTFOLIO CONCEPTS / EXHIBITION DESIGN


In Portfolio Concepts / Exhibition Design, students refine their artistic vision and deepen their portfolio and exhibition ideas through exposure to advanced historical and contemporary strategies for presenting visual fine art projects and prints.

A series of lectures addresses the role of the portfolio, the history and importance of the visual fine art book, book design and binding strategies and techniques, and the role and importance of editing. Students also study exhibition and museum design strategies in historical and contemporary contexts and learn about issues such as gallery lighting, the roles of supporting documentation, and marketing and promotion strategies. Finally students are introduced to issues such as branding and developing and managing a visual fine arts practice.
