As a part of Education Lab, our Critical and Curatorial Studies School offers the students an opportunity to get a hands-on/’learn by doing’ knowledge and experience in the main philosophical, political, critical and art theories. This is the only art education program in Armenia offering experimental syllabi and it is led by a faculty of key theorists, curators, artists and arts managers operating in Armenia.
When it comes to development and implementation stage, our Practice Lab is a lively framework of/for our alumni and current students offering on demand services in all stages of multi-scale and multi-format project production namely consulting, guidance, creative management assistance and production.
Harnessing the knowledge, skills and tools developed within the Theory Lab and earned through Education program, the students and open attendants gain an opportunity to further bring them into life through Practice Lab and transfer it to Theory, analyzing the research results and opening up new space for new texts and the development of new discourses.
