From pitching your ideas and writing loan requests to working with artists, lenders and art handlers; from writing interpretation material to installing and promoting your exhibition, this is the most clear and complete guide yet to the art of curating. The introduction 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 and organizer. Adrian George then guides the reader through the processes of curating an exhibition in twelve chapters. Each step is described in valuable detail and clear, informative language by this experienced curator, whose text pinpoints the keys to success (as well as which pitfalls to avoid). With advice and tips from a cast of international museum directors and curators - including Daniel Birnbaum, Aric Chen, Elizabeth Ann MacGregor, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Jennifer Russell and Nicholas Serota - this is the essential handbook for all students, museum and gallery professionals, and established or aspiring curators.--Publisher."@en ;
