Recon­cep­tu­alised cu­rat­ing

Neue Luxury - - News - By Mariam Ar­cilla

For­get stan­dard gate­keep­ing, in to­days art world a prime­time cu­ra­tor is ex­pected to tog­gle be­tween cu­ra­tor, critic, writer, his­to­rian, re­searcher, bro­ker and ad­vo­cate. Lim­it­less in their drive to fore­cast, trans­late and in­flu­ence their spheres, a cu­ra­tor must also rig­or­ously keep on top of an es­ca­lat­ing or­bit of new artists, con­cepts, spa­ces, ex­hi­bi­tions and bi­en­nals. From the star-cu­ra­tors whose names are among the most ut­tered, to the ris­ing van­guards carv­ing shapes out­side the dom­i­nant West­ern sphere, we un­cover the lu­mi­nar­ies who are nail­ing down a new and provoca­tive land­scape for con­tem­po­rary art.
