Welcome to the September edition of Pick ‘N Mix, my monthly annotated list of curating-related things:

Map Magazine is a terrific Scottish magazine on contemporary art, and by subscribing to their RSS feed I have discovered a couple of brief notes of interest to curators posted to its website recently: a story and a few quotes from two Spanish curators, Javier Marroquí and David Arlandis, who developed an exhibition during the Edinburgh Art Festival, and another short piece from Daniel Birnbaum, discussing curating 2 Turin Triennial and the 53rd Venice Bienniale.

– Speaking of magazines, one has the feeling that a service like Mygazines won’t last long, given its function: it’s a massive unofficial repository of magazines, including some pretty major titles. Of course I first browsed the Art and Culture section, which I am sorry to tell you is quite thin. However, pop terms like “curator” into the search box, and see what hidden gems come up from deep within the pages of magazines that don’t specialise in art (and chuckle at some of the silly things that come up, too).

– Of special attention to French speakers: a new curatorial association has begun in France. Check out CEA!

– And a quick note for UK residents that once again, the deadline for the Crafts Council Spark Plug Curator awards is approaching fast – get your applications in by September 26.
