Abstract

If everything can be ‘curated’, what happens to the figure of the curator? In the award-winning book, Curationism: How Curating Took Over the Art World and Everything Else, art critic David Balzer traces the historical transformation of the value and labour of curation as a profession as its practices come to permeate everyday life. Olivia Spyth recommends this book to readers interested in a critical history of the curator and art exhibitions as well as to those looking for a discussion of identity and value in the digital age.
