Cautionary Tales: Critical Curating

Cautionary Tales: Critical Curating - Jean-Hubert Martin, David Carrier, Sara Arrhenius

I came across this book in my college's library while doing research for an essay on the changing roles and concept of the curator. It was certainly interesting to be exposed to such different perspectives on curating. There were a lot of opinions I disagreed with strongly, and a few positive and thought-provoking points being made. The field of art curating is still a relatively new one to be studied, and in the sense that everyone is still trying to make sense of it, this is a valuable book that is sure to raise questions.
