Abstract

This thesis explores the hybrid pedagogical identities of curator and educator, specifically where they overlap, converge, and conflict in the curation of an art exhibition. In this study, I curated an exhibition locating my identity and enacting the hybrid identity of educator, artist, and curator. I constructed a phenomenological text as an account of the connections and disconnections between the role of the educator and curator. The tension between inclusivity and exclusivity in the arts is discussed as a major tension between these roles, as well as didactic versus open-ended pedagogical strategies.
The phenomenological account of the curation of the exhibition Postcards From Home at Ste. Emilie Skillshare in Montreal, Quebec was used as the data for this study, as well as interviews with audience members and participating artists.
