Sarah Wilbur recently returned from guest teaching graduate arts curators this summer at Wesleyan University’s Institute for Curatorial Practice and Performance (ICPP), a center for the academic study of the presentation and contextualization of contemporary performance. 

Her course introduced students to a variety of creative strategies that artists and curators draw on to successfully navigate the ever-changing conditions of the global cultural economy. 

Wilbur and co-investigators Dr. Paul Bonin Rodriguez (UT Austin) and Deborah Goffe (Hampshire College) are also leading an aligned research project to produce six artist case studies for the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation during these intensives in Middletown, Connecticut that highlight the creative work and workarounds that undergird careers in live performance.
