curated project

Initiated by one or a group of curators to address a set of questions, often yet not necessarily involving artists, cultural collaborators or artworks. Once considered simply a caretaker for collections, the curator is now viewed as a globally connected auteur with curatorship perceived as a constellation of creative activities not unlike artistic practice. The curator has gone from a behind-the-scenes organiser and selector to a visible, centrally important cultural producer.
