The Doris Duke Foundation supports ICPP performing artist case studies

0


This summer, students looking for a Masters in Performing Curatorial from Wesleyan’s Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (ICPP) work on six case studies of performing artists funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

On July 16, the ICPP Entrepreneurial Strategies class discussed their first artist – Becca Blackwell, an award-winning trans actor, performer and writer based in New York City. Blackwell works with consultants and mentors at ICPP to develop a strategic framework for the next two to five years of their careers. Blackwell will also present his work at Wesleyan on October 5.

The mix of ICPP instructors - artists, academics, curators, cultural leaders, writers and theorists - is intended to spark new possibilities and connections both intellectually and professionally.  Instructors provide students with theoretical and practical tools to deepen their research methodologies through reading, writing, viewing, and discussion.

The ICPP, founded in 2011, encourages emerging curators to enrich their understanding of intellectually rigorous, innovative and artist-centered curatorial models. Through a low-residency model, ICPP asks its students not only to engage with ideas, but also to simultaneously put those ideas into practice in their professional lives, developing responsive conservation practices that approach nature. interdisciplinary performance work today.
