INDEPENDENT CURATORS INTERNATIONAL, NEW YORK

Words Of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum

Published by Independent Curators International, New York
Edited by Carin Kuoni. Essays by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Carlos Basualdo, René Block, Francesco Bonami, Dan Cameron, Lynne Cooke, Bice Curiger, Donna De Salvo, Richard Flood, Thelma Golden, Yuko Hasegawa, Jean-Hubert Martin, Gerardo Mosquera, Hans Ulrich Obrist.

A modern update of the Medieval trade manuals--the 'come-along-with-me' (vade mecum) of Medieval craftsmen--Words of Wisdom: A Curator's Vade Mecum is an invaluable guidebook for anyone interested in contemporary art and the practice of curating. In over fifty short essays, this compendium offers advice to a new generation of curators from veterans of contemporary art exhibitions who, over the past 25 years, have played a crucial role in shaping what we see today, and how we see it. While providing an intimate look at the minds of these master curators, Words of Wisdom also establishes the curator's craft as an important vocation that has changed tremendously over the past quarter-century. In the course of their musings, the curators offer behind-the-scenes insights into influential exhibitions and institutions and the contemporary art world they represent. Among the contributors are Jean-Christophe Amman, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt, Germany; Donna de Salvo, curator at the Tate Gallery, London; Richard Flood, chief curator at the Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; independent curator Hans Ulrich Obrist; and Marcia Tucker, founding director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
