The Master in Curatorship of Architecture and Design aims to train professionals to be capable of developing curatorial projects with a solid foundation in theory, critical thinking, and strategic knowledge of exhibition-making. The goal of the programme is to stimulate innovative curatorial approaches aimed at generating new ways of understanding, discussing and presenting our built and natural environment.


The year-long academic course is structured as follows:


·         Four month-long classes, which run from October until the end of January in Venice

·         Three-month internship, in any possible country (self applied, with assistance from the course team)

·         Five month-long period devoted to the final thesis (curatorial project)


The programme welcomes applicants with formal backgrounds in—but not limited to— architecture, art history, design anthropology, sociology, or visual and communication studies. Taking advantage of its location, IUAV will offer participants an unrivalled opportunity to be immersed in the globally significant context of the International Architecture and Art Exhibitions, La Biennale di Venezia. In Milan, a two hour train journey away from the programme’s home base, the Triennale di Milano will also provide real-world case studies.
