Curriculum explores the intersection of contemporary art and school education, surveying a broad range of practices that share an interest in how the conventions of learning, as typically encountered in schools, might be extended or reimagined.

At the heart of Curriculum is Art School, an art-in-education initiative that has brought artists to work with students in Ireland since 2014. Essays in the book engage with the work of artists who took part in Art School, exploring specific moments within the program and revealing their resonance in the wider field of art and craft education. These texts offer a forum in which to rethink art education at all levels, while retaining a committed and informed engagement with the phenomena they assess. A vital text for curators, artists, and educators, Curriculum considers the school as a zone of artistic and curatorial practice, foregrounding the potential of contemporary art (understood in wide terms) to stimulate students’ creativity in original and open ways.
