Students in Curatorial Praxis concluded class this week with the last of the student presentations about the artists to be represented in the show and a bit of cake, courtesy of Professor Solomon (featuring the work of Mohamed el Baz, one of our Artists in Residence).
While the semester has come to a close, work on the show will continue throughout the summer and right up until the show’s opening on October 24. Students turned in the final drafts of their catalog entries in class, but the catalog design process is ongoing. Professor Solomon will continue to figure out how exactly all the works will actually get to us—shipping art, perhaps unsurprisingly, is a complicated endeavor—and, of course, the exhibition itself will have to be installed, a feat that will require the hard work of Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery staff, volunteers (including some Curatorial Praxis alums who will be on campus next semester), and perhaps a few of the artists themselves.
Look for more updates as the exhibition’s opening approaches. Until then—
