Curatorial Research Bureau
Curatorial Research Bureau

Fall 2019

This fall the Curatorial Research Bureau presents a series of academic and public programs with curators Ute Meta Bauer and Sarah Rifky and designer Na Kim.


The hub of learning for the California College of the Arts Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice, located at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

A bookshop, a learning site, an exhibition and public program, Curatorial Research Bureau unites education and consumerism inside a contemporary arts institution, prioritizing context—of art, ideas, people, places, and things—as an active ingredient in the practice of curatorial research.


Made possible with funding and support from California College of the Arts and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Produced by Bureau for Open Culture.
