Exploring Art Dynasties   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

How can we present entire Museum collections, acquired from different periods of time, different countries, and with different motives and aesthetics, in a way that makes them comprehensible for diverse audiences? The co-curators of a new exhibition in Israel write about their approach to tackling the permanent acquisitions at their institute, forging surprising new connections between works from different eras. The collection of the Haifa Museum of Art was accumulated in two defining periods in t... [more]

Jeder ist ein Curator: How Crowdsourced Curation Can Make Museums Truly Public   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

I think I might have curated my lunch today. I chose a specific sandwich from the collection on offer at the shop and to accompany it I chose a drink that I thought would go well with my sandwich. To balance the selection, I included a banana. The result might have been a “well-curated” lunch, but I’m not sure. It depends on who’s defining of the term. In recent years the word “curating” escaped the confines of museums to be picked up by the mainstream, while the acti... [more]

In order to expand, we are looking for independent musicians, independent designers, assistant music curators, editorial designers, a... [more]

Meet Will Brown: Meta-Curating   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by

Although “meta” is often misused as dismissive shorthand for the self-referential, it is, in its most fruitful sense, a tool for critical distance. Will Brown’s second exhibition was a history of black monochrome painting that included requisite, museum-quality copy and literature, but the paintings themselves were merely signified by chalk outlines on black gallery walls. The shapes creeped over moldings and ceiling space, overlapping in ways that made it clear that even if the proprietors of the m... [more]

Spending Time: Interview with Anthony Huberman   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 11/29/12

Anthony Huberman is the director of The Artist's Institute in New York, a peculiar little space on Eldridge Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Entering this below-street-level gallery, it's not uncommon to see only one work of art on the wall at any given time. Run as a project of Hunter College, The Artist's Institute, rather than running on the typical gallery schedule of an-exhibition-a-month, is on the semester system: focusing on one artist per season. Focus might be the wrong wor... [more]

From NY: Sophia Powers and Kind of Blue

5/10/11 Posted 5/10/11

As a museum intern, I was recently privy to an extended meeting between the curatorial and design staff concerning the selection of a color scheme for the wall labels of our upcoming show. We met in a corner office around a big table strewn with paint sample binders.  The conversation began simply. “What are you thinking of?” the head of the design team asked. “Blue—I feel blue,” the head of the curatorial team replied.  “Can you show me your blues?” “Of course.”  We look at blues. There is mu... [more]

I’ve been ruminating about the “attempt.” I’ve been rolling the word and a few of its meanings over in my mind these last days. (Some joke could be inserted here about “attempts to understand attempt,” I’ll let you come up with your own.) In all this cogitation, the word thankfully did not dissolve into meaninglessness (as some words do when you repeat them too many times—spoon… spoon… spoon… spoon… spoon?), instead it gained a new kind of significance for me. The impetus for this rumination on... [more]
