During this Interintellect Curation Series Patricia Hurducas will lead a discussion on the topic of curation in three parts: Understanding the Curator (Part 1), Copying the Curator (Part 2), and Becoming the Curator (Part 3).
In the first part of the series – Understanding the Curator – we will explore the history of curation, the role of the curator in museums/galleries/online, the skills and the experience required of a curator, and why are curatorial studies flourishing today. As a companion we will discuss fragments from The Curator’s Handbook written by Adrian George. Purchasing or reading the book in advance is not mandatory, materials with selected quotes from the book will be shared during the salon with the participants.
During this series we will discuss as well essays from A Companion to Curation – materials with the selected texts will be provided during the salon. A Companion to Curation primarily addresses the unprecedented interest in contemporary art curating during the last 30 years and how the curatorial discourse has changed during this period.
Questions that we will explore in the first part of the series:
- What/who is a curator?
- How can we turn good ideas into real projects/exhibitions/installations?
- What is the role of the curator today?
- What are the steps needed in curating an exhibition/installation?
- Why is curating flourishing today?
- What exhibition is necessary?

- A Companion To Curation (Part 1: An Overview: The Origin and Provenance of Curating)
