MPSM342 Methods & Design/Art Exhibition 3 cr.

In this course, students will be guided through
the design/build fundamentals of installing an
art exhibit, preparing artwork for installation
and the construction methods used in producing
exhibitions. Students will have the opportunity
to learn new skills that can be applied to
preparing and installing their own artwork. The
course, which takes place in a classroom and
gallery setting, will start with an introduction
to the fundamentals (hardware, tools,
understanding basic floor plans, construction,
fabrication, sustainable materials, shipping,
lighting and basic A/V installation) followed by
a study of concept and design processes (exhibit
design, curation, registration), installation
procedures and finally, install/de-install a
professional exhibit at MassArt’s Bakalar and
Paine Galleries.
