MA Program in Contemporary Art Curatorial Practice

The Curatorial Internship will place students in the MA Program with contemporary arts institutions around Columbus and Ohio, where they will work closely with the curatorial staff on exhibitions and attending to the day-to-day operations of the institution.

In addition, students will be able to avail themselves of everything Ohio State’s Wexner Center for the Arts has to offer, from exhibitions, film screenings and performances to talks by some of the leading figures in the field of contemporary art. Recent Wexner Center Residency Award recipients include Zoe Leonard, Josiah McElheny, Kerry James Marshall, William Forsythe, Mark Bradford, and Sarah Oppenheimer.

Curatorial Practice students will also have the opportunity to work on the Department of Art’s MFA exhibitions, staged annually at OSU’s Urban Arts Space, or to write for There There, an online journal of contemporary art in the Midwest, several of whose editorial board members are on the History of Art faculty at Ohio State.
