Be A Curator




February 23, 2011

Institution ArtsConnectEd

The role of the curator is examined in this Art Collector Set.

  • Who is a curator? 
  • How does a curator put an exhibition together?
  • What influence does the public have on the selection of artworks for an exhibition?

The artworks included in this Set are from the Walker Art Center exhibition titled 50/50: Audience and Experts Curate the Paper Collection.

This Set is designed for middle and high school students and it is complemented by an art activity written in a PDF format. You will find it attached to the last slide at the end of this presentation.

You can find out more about each work by clicking on the "More Info" button in the Present mode.
Feel free to make this Set your own. As a registered user of ArtsConnectEd you can duplicate any published Art Collector Set to your own account. Once a Set is duplicated you can edit the Set and its slides. Click here to learn more about duplicating a published Set.

If you're intrigued by the democratic approach of 50/50, you may be interested in the Plains Art Museum's exhibition You LIke This: A Democratic Approach to the Permanent Collection. Read more in this blog post:

Yes, a comparison of the two exhibitions would be interesting.

Some questions come to mind.

How are personal decisions made about an artwork? "I like this because it....."

Does it matter if the artwork has never been seen in person? 

Can you predict what themes will emerge in the Plains Art Museum's exhibition?
