Curators

72 - Printemps / été 2011

Theme: The practice of curating is flourishing. A rising number of exhibiting institutions and events are inviting curators to mount shows in their venues. Ever since Harald Szeemann was credited with inventing the genre in 1972, the role of independent curator has indeed undergone enormous changes, along with the issues related to the task. Not only are curators are quite visible when their exhibitions are presented but they are also the subject of increasing theoretical investigation, which testifies to the practice’s in-depth transformations. This themed section explores current curating conditions, in particular how the limits of artistic artmaking and exhibition as gestures are being redefined.

Our team is now on summer vacations and will be back on August 24.
Please note that purchases on our online shop, including PDF formats, will be processed upon our return.
