30 ART CURATORS
ENGLISH | ESPAÑOL
What is curator? As a first definition we can point out that it is a practice where the works in an exhibition are arranged to create new meanings. For some experts on the subject, in this practice there is a performative act that takes place in a physical space: a museum, a gallery, an independent space, but also a public space.
For a curator to play his/her role to the full, his/her actions must be grounded in theoretical bases: his/he work is that of a thinker who intervenes in the art world through complex discourses with simple solutions. For me, the role of the curator is to provide tools for viewers to interpret the works in a given context.
