Originated as a means to construct critical and theoretical reflection using the object on show, the task of the curator has been profoundly transformed, allowing itself to become seduced by the charm of its own application to other sectors, such as fashion and design. From the 1990s, the moment in which a new way of understanding fashion, the two areas saw an overlap between them in a partnership that is now a new and appealing challenge for the art world.

Record numbers achieved by recent shows dedicated to giants in the fashion world show the ability of this sector to reach a vast and varied public, even when it leaves behind the display cases and windows to enter the rooms of that sacred temple of art: the museum. Entering this context means following precise rules and accepting the dimensions that are so dear to the art world.

Aimed at students who already have a degree or proven career experience in this field, the Masters in Curating Art & Fashion offers a path through completely unexplored territory, where curatorship is being looked at in every aspect of its identity – curating an exhibition means taking care of a whole range of conceptual and organisational aspects regarding an exhibition project: content, layout, coordination, promotion, financial management – and its current declination between art and fashion.
