Curatorial Intensive
Public Galleries Association of Victoria
When: THURSDAY 7 & FRIDAY 8 December 2017
Where: The Ian Potter Museum of Art


The PGAV is pleased to present the fourth instalment of the Curatorial Intensive for curators and arts industry professionals. Over two days we will gain insights from curators through panel discussions, forums, an exhibition tour, a showcase of upcoming touring exhibitions and, for the first time, a curatorial workshop.  

The Curatorial Intensive is the key professional development event for curators – bringing emerging, independent and public gallery curators together to consider current issues, new approaches, extend professional networks and foster collaboration.
