Curationism: How Curating Took Over the Art World and Everything Else

This product is sold out.


Now that we "curate" even lunch, what happens to the role of the connoisseur in contemporary culture? "Curate" is now a buzzword, applied to everything from music festivals to artisanal cheese. Inside the art world, the curator reigns supreme, acting as the face of high-profile group shows and biennials in a way that can eclipse and assimilate the contributions of individual artists. Curatorial-studies programs continue to grow, and the business world is adopting curation as a means of adding value to content. Everyone, it seems, is a curator. Softcover, 144 pages
