Who is the curator?

The curator is, historically, someone that generally exercises care (for artists, their wellbeing and legacy, for art collections). In time, the role of the curator has acquired more complexity and can perhaps be best described through the metaphor of a seismograph, bringing attention to history-shifting art and movements. The role of a curator is also to produce and disseminate knowledge through exhibition making, writing and teaching in order to give visibility to often underrepresented or little-researched artists and issues, to question dominant narratives, rewrite histories.
