the curator as celebrity

Simply put, where the ’80s made stars of purveyors and acquisitors, the ’90s turned the spotlight on curators — and today we live with the consequences: pseudo-intellectualism replacing scholarship, an indifference toward the past, fashionability substituting for merit, the exercise of style instead of analysis, and an elevation of artistic stewardship over art.“ (The curator as celebrity – chicago tribune, june 22, 2003 – via modern art notes)
