Museum exhibition curating
Theory & practice

Teacher for the final year course of the Panthéon-Sorbonne’s master’s degree in Cultural and Technical Heritage since 2019

Initiated a pedagogical/educational partnership with the Duperré School of Design and Applied Arts which led to a joint final year project.
Established specialized professional collaborations for archival studies.

Course syllabus
1st semester: lectures, case studies, and group discussions.
2nd semester: artistic and scientific supervision of the graduation project

This course in Museum Exhibition Curating combines theoretical knowledge with practical know-how. At the end of the year, each student produces an exhibition of archival materials and documents as their final project for their degree. These exhibitions put the interdisciplinary research methods into practice, reflecting the students’ specializations as they bring together art history, applied and decorative arts, architecture, philosophy, history, sociology, and anthropology.

Due to the pandemic, the project has become a «newspaper-exhibition»  that includes all objects exhibited, but which is presented as a vast document. Taking a subject determined by Anaïs Lepage, the students write their content and select all the documents and photos to be included; the Deperré School’s Graphic Design students create the publication’s graphic design and final layout.

Pedagogical approach
Experiential learning and horizontal exchanges with students which include an introductory phase where students meet curators, visit exhibitions, and write critical analyses of them; time for collective reflection and research; and a major project completed in collaboration with students from the Duperré School of Design and Applied Arts.
