Curators of the World Unite!

Here’s a cause for the Association of Art Museum Curators: I have long believed that curators should get credit, by name, on the introductory wall text of exhibitions they organize. I wouldn’t produce work without a byline. Why should they?

This thought occurred to me again, as it has many times before, at the revelatory Pollock drawings show at the Guggenheim Museum (mentioned below). A long list of corporate and individual sponsors gets plenty of wall space at the entrance, but not Susan Davidson, who, more than the funders, really did make it all possible.

Credit where credit is due, CultureGrrl always says.
