The Trouble With Curating

Andrew Renton chairs this discussion with Emily Pethick and artist Pavel Buchler on the role of the curator.

The verb to ‘curate’ is a recent addition to the lexicon of the art world. How has the role of the curator developed and as the boundaries increasingly blurred between the artist and the curator, is there a fundamental difference of position between artist and curator? Independent curator and writer Andrew Renton chairs a discussion with Tate Britain director Penelope Curtis, the director of The Showroom Emily Pethick and Czech born artist, lecturer and writer Pavel Buchler.
