The Exhibition Makers

Read this informative article by William Hanley about the role curators are playing in organizing exhibitions.

"In a recent essay about the task of organizing an exhibition, star curator Robert Storr, who directed this year’s Venice Biennale, made a point of distinguishing between people he called “exhibition makers,” who are responsible for putting together temporary shows, and curators, whose “primary concern” is the “care and preservation of art.” Read here from the fall 2007 issue of Museums magazine. Anne Ellegood of the Hirshhorn Museum is also mentioned.
