Honours in Curatorship 2021 applications

The programme offers courses in the theory and practice of curatorship, developing in students a sophisticated awareness of the practicalities, politics and poetics of working with collections of many kinds. Students are encouraged to bring the disciplinary insights of their undergraduate major (whether this be in the visual arts, the humanities or the sciences) to the curating of both material and virtual collections, and are offered opportunities to work on exhibitions in public spaces and in the digital realm.

In loving memory of Nicholas Nomumu Simane

One month ago the CCA lost a friend and colleague following complications related to Covid 19. Nicholas Simane worked at the Centre for Curating the Archive, Michaelis School of Fine Art, for over 10 years. He maintained our exhibitions workshop, and assisted students in both the CCA and the printmaking section of the school.

Under the Dome launch

Last week Friday, the 15th of November, the Centre for Curating the Archive launched the first experimental film festival of dome mastered content on the continent! The festival ran in collaboration with Iziko Museums of South Africa and screened nine short films, over three days, at Iziko's planetarium. This was a challenging process, not only in putting the festival together, but in facilitating the creation of this sort of content which has been largely unexplored in South Africa.
