The program was established in 2003 by curators Kate Fowle and Ralph
Rugoff. It provides practical training in curating and organizing
exhibitions as well as rigorous study in modern and contemporary art
history, theory, and criticism. Close, ongoing partnerships with outside

materials, and artists, and allow them to engage in original research and
collaborative projects. The programme also organizes numerous exhibitions,
lectures, symposia, and other new forums for the discussion of ideas.
Central to the programme's philosophy is the development of the curriculum
with faculty who are active professionals. Core instructors include
curators, art historians, and other art professionals from prominent
institutions throughout the Bay Area.

history of art, fine art, or other appropriate area of the humanities or
