Get Your Things Together / Curating Workshop with PhMuseum

This content is also available translated into Italian.

The Workshop

Get Your Things Together is a workshop by PhMuseum currently held at Condominio, Milan. The next session will take place on May 11-12, focusing on Curating.

Giuseppe Oliverio (PhMuseum Founding Director) and Camilla Marrese (PhMuseum Visual Editor) will share key principles on the presentation in digital and physical format of a photographic project. The participants' work will be a starting point for reflecting together on the dynamics of visual languages, and on design methods that help disseminating one’s artistic practice.

After a first weekend dedicated to photo editing, applications are still open for May 11-12 to delve into the curation, design and production of an exhibition.

PhMuseum is a platform dedicated to visual language and its culture. Since 2012 it has supported a new generation of photographers thanks to its Grant Program, awarding artists such as Max Pinckers, Poulomi Basu, Jacob Aue Sobol, Diana Markosian, Alejandro Cartagena, Bieke Depoorter. Since 2017 PhMuseum founded its Education Program, offering individual sessions and masterclasses engaging more than 60 students from all over the world every year. In 2020 the multifunctional space of PhMuseum Lab was inaugurated in Bologna, focusing on exhibitions and workshops. In 2021 PhMuseum founded its International Photography Festival PhMuseum Days, through which exhibitions for artists such as Penelope Umbrico, Brea Souders, Alejandro Chaskielberg, Vasantha Yogananthan, Silvia Rosi, Felicity Hammond, and Andy Sewell have been curated and produced.

How it works

  • Curating / 11 and 12 May / €230

    Bringing a project into physical space represents an opportunity to consolidate and expand its meanings. It is increasingly important for an artist to be able to be a curator of their work as well: to look at it from a design point of view, and to figure out how to decline it according to the needs of a context. In these two days we will look at curating as a set of techniques and methods to connect with an audience and make photography three-dimensional. We will navigate the variables of budget, materials and space, reflecting on how to create unconventional presentations that allow for the expression of an idea.

    Program and Goals

    We will analyze several case studies, presenting the tutors’ experience gained through the PhMuseum Lab exhibition space and the PhMuseum Days festival. The two days will be articulated through exercises of increasing complexity, where participants will get to simulate the curation of their own exhibition from design to communication. Together we will reflect on the different installation possibilities of their work, coming to articulate a proper exhibition proposal. At the end of the workshop everyone will have analyzed their work from different perspectives, laying the concrete foundations of an exhibition project.


    Have one project or a coherent body of images (min. 15 max. 50). It is recommended to bring a computer with Adobe Photoshop and/or Indesign installed. Please create a Miro account before starting the workshop.
