Cooperstown Graduate Program

Degree Qualification Profile

Cooper-Hewitt/Parsons Program

This month, a New School-led coalition of 500 university students and formerly incarcerated individuals from 20 cities launched States of Incarceration, the first national traveling multi-media exhibition and coordinated public dialogue to explore the history and future of mass incarceration in the United States. Students from the MA program worked with graduate students across Parsons.

In addition working on the exhibition, some students also presented their work at the curatorial slam sponsored by the Curatorial Design Research Lab (CDRL).

Students in the MA program also work directly with Cooper Hewitt collections in the proseminar course which they take their first semester. One of the final projects is to write an Object of the Day entry for the Cooper Hewitt website.

University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

- Ackland Art Museum Study Gallery

- Course development grants are available in departments / programs for guest speakers, trips, and special projects. I used one such grant this year in my course, "The Material Life of Jewish America," to enable the students to curate a final exhibition in the Jewish Studies Center. The exhibit was called "From T-Shirts to Tattoos: Jewish Material Culture at UNC-Chapel Hill".

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Student exhibitions lie at the core of the material culture program at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Eight different courses produced exhibitions and two more (fall spring this year) have produced object studies from a local historical society for a new museum. These include both undergraduates and graduate students. I will look forward to talking about the projects.

There is not an easy institutional frame to find these, although I have several links on my faculty page. The easiest way to get a whole sense of them in on my new personal website under the header "some exhibitions" and the pages there contain most info including videos and descriptions. These exhibitions have been held in at the Smithsonian (woo-woo), a regional gallery, university art museum, the university art museum plus two science buildings. and the art library.

One suggestion is we talk about the necessity of teaching objects, contexts, and curatorial practice often in short time period.

Another is the distinction between traditional and guerilla installations.
