20 questions you’ve always wanted answered by a curator
To celebrate Ask A Curator Day, we posed 20 questions to 20 curators nationally, touching on topics from ethical responsibilities to working internationally, managing space, finding artists and curating for kids.
An initiative that started in 2010, #AskACurator was the brainchild of Jim Richardson, founder of MuseumNext, a conference on the future of our cultural institutions. The one-day event was designed to usurp the bland marketing messages of institutions and to put real questions to real faces.
While the idea started harnessing Twitter’s networking power, it has since moved on to embrace multiple platforms. A decade on, ArtsHub has posed 20 questions to 20 curators nationally.
