Welcome to this month’s Pick ‘N Mix, a selection of interesting tidbits about curators that I spotted on the web over the past few weeks. – Interesting material on the use of “slack spaces” for art in the recession continues to accumulate: The San Francisco Sentinel had an article recently, and the recent launch of the “No Longer Empty” initiative […]

Apologies for a late Pick ‘N Mix this month… but I had a great excuse. Like many others in the art world, the beginning of June involved being completely absorbed in the Venice Biennale. You can check out my photos from Venice here. – While we’re on the topic of Venice, the Wall Street Journal posted a short interview with […]

Welcome to May’s Pick ‘N Mix: – An interesting ethical issue is raised by Regina Hackett in her great, new-ish blog, Another Bouncing Ball. In a post entitled “Curators who are loath to credit art dealers“, she outlines a few examples wherein collectors were acknowledged, but the dealers who helped to make an artist’s career weren’t. She asks: “Isn’t it […]

Recently I was interviewed by Annette Wolfsberger for LabforCulture, about this blog and my conception of art blogging in Europe. It’s the beginning of a new series on cultural blogging.

In like a lion, out like a lamb… welcome to March’s Pick ‘N Mix, a real mixed bag of treats this month: – First of all, a postscript of sorts to last month’s Pick ‘N Mix, the “credit crunch edition”: You’ve all surely read it by now, but in case you haven’t, Holland Cotter’s article, “The Boom Is Over! Long […]

Welcome to December’s Pick ‘N Mix! – First off, a project by Vienna-based curator Miriam Kathrein. Kathrein has been developing her artist vs curator/curator vs artist project since 2007, and the latest iteration of this project is being featured on trickhouse.org. The project is a vehicle for debate and visualisation that examines “…the relationship and shifting roles of artists and […]

The San Francisco Art Institute has a podcast series entitled “Dialogues”. Two podcasts in this series may interest Curating.info readers: one featuring Laura Hoptman, and another featuring Carlos Basualdo. Laura Hoptman curated the 2004 Carnegie International exhibition in Pittsburgh and Drawing Now: Eight Propositions at the Museum of Modern Art, Queens. In her talk, Hoptman discusses her interest in artwork […]

Welcome to October’s Pick ‘N Mix. First off, a couple of housekeeping items. You may have noticed the arrival of the “Culture Pundit Ad Network” box to the right. I would like this site to support itself a little, yet I am unwilling to inflict garish and irrelevant ads upon my readers. The logical solution was to apply to become […]
