As an independent curator primarily organizing contemporary art exhibitions for the last couple of decades, and now director of exhibitions and collections at Edison State College, I have had a profound interest not only in the way that art is presented in museums and galleries, but also in what and how it communicates to visitors.
It is the role of the museum curator to both select the work (art or artifacts) on view, and to provide a point of entry for interpreting them. We publish catalogue essays, draft press releases, provide exhibition tours for interested parties, and do docent trainings so our volunteers can talk insightfully about the art and exhibitions in our absence.
