Curating means the creation of innovative structures for the presentation of cultural artifacts through interdisciplinary collaboration. In this field art, digital media, and design relate in new ways to one another.
The Phantom Gallery seeks to provide a model situation for emerging curators to gain practical curating experience, and to critically reflect on the issues involved.
The last few years have seen curators working in increasingly close collaboration with artists, designers, and educationalists on the development of exhibitions, projects in the public sphere, the design of museum spaces, and the presentation of collections. Contemporary exhibitions are changing, with new interpretative strategies complementing the integration into exhibitions of innovative display structures, lounge areas, archives, reading rooms, and new media interfaces.
