On Curating (book)
On Curating, Carolee Thea’s second volume of interviews with ten of today’s leading curators, explores the intellectual convictions and personal visions that lay the groundwork for the most prestigious and influential exhibitions in the world today. Among the aesthetic and theoretical issues raised are the relationship between artist and curator, globalism, post-colonialism, capitalism, the future of cultural tourism and the biennial as spectacle or ideal utopian. As Thea notes in her introduction, “the biennial or mega-exhibition – a laboratory for experimentation, research and aesthetic liberation – is where the curators’ experience and knowledge are tested. As they negotiate venues for artistic expression, intellectual critiques and humanistic concerns in their own societies and others, they are challenged by the certainties and uncertainties of a constantly evolving future. ” Thea’s interviewees are Joseph Backstein, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Okwui Enwezor, Charles Esche, Massimiliano Gioni, RoseLee Goldberg, Mary Jane Jacob, Pi Li, Virginia Perez-Ratton and Rirkrit Tiravanija. On Curating also includes 50 color illustrations of relevant works by (among others) Kutlug Ataman, Tamy Ben-Tor, John Bock, Cao Fei, Olafur Eliasson, Isaac Julien, Francois & Philippe Parreno, Yvonne Rainer, Michael Rakowitz, Doris Salcedo, Allan Sekula, Yinka Shonibare and Francesca Woodman.Carolee Thea is a curator, critic, art historian and independent scholar. Her first book, Foci: Interviews with Ten International Curators was published in 2001. She is contributing editor at ArtAsiaPacific and Sculpture magazine and was the English editor of Atlántica 45.
