The Curator's Handbook
The Curator’s Handbook is the essential practical handbook for all those interested or involved in the dynamic field of curating, from students to art world professionals, and established to aspiring curators. From pitching ideas and writing loan requests to working with artists, lenders and art handlers; from writing interpretation material to installing and promoting an exhibition, this is the most clear and complete guide to the art of curating.
The volume maps the history of curating from its origins in the 17th century to the multifarious roles of the curator today: tastemaker, custodian, interpreter, educator, facilitator, organiser. Adrian George then guides the reader through the process of curating an exhibition in 12 distinct chapters. Each step is described in precise detail and clear, informative language by this experienced curator. George pinpoints both the keys to success and which pitfalls to avoid. The book also includes advice and tips from an array of international museum directors and curators – including Daniel Birnbaum, Aric Chen, Elizabeth MacGregor, Hans Ulrich Olbrist, Jennifer Russell and Nicholas Serota.
