''Behind every great Artist is a great Curator''
Behind every great artist is a great curator. Today, curating as a profession means at least four things. It means to preserve, in the sense of safeguarding the heritage of art. It means to be the selector of new work. It means to connect to art history. And it means displaying or arranging the work. But it's more than that. Before 1800, few people went to exhibitions. Now hundreds of millions of people visit them every year. The show made you realize that that's what curating is: it isn't necessarily about showing good art to its best advantage. It's about making an exhibition that's really good. You can make a good show without having good art in it. That's not to say you can't have both, just that it's possible without both.
