Wendover documents three classes with CCA’s Curatorial Practice MA students led by Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI) Director Matthew Coolidge, and San Francisco based curator Marina McDougall. Taking as their focus the analysis of exhibition and residency models, and looking more broadly at factors such as audience or site-specific programming the Curatorial Practice students engaged with the CLUI Outpost and Artist Residency in Wendover over a three year period. A reader of sorts, the publication distills the students’ activities and interactions with Wendover and documents their resulting projects: an audio tour (2008); a film program (2009); and an archive expansion (2010). Also included are interviews with Coolidge, Center for Art & Environment Director, William Fox, and numerous texts contributed by both students and visiting faculty.
