All the forums were
lively and well-attended, with discussions about how different curators
approached selecting and putting together exhibitions; how the exhibition
programs of museums and smaller art institutions function; the role of curators
vis-à-vis artists; the responsibilities of curators in relation to art makers
and the general public. Audio excerpts
from the forums will be available on the website in Summer 2010.
MARCH 14 - 31, 5:30pm
The Doubletree Hotel Downtown Houston, Texas
Unlike in the online world, most art work we see
in museums, galleries and print publications doesn’t come to audiences
directly. The intermediaries are curators, editors and, increasingly,
private collectors. Among these intermediaries, the role of the curator
is the least understood.
