curatorial tip 8

Curators, do not speak louder than the artwork. As much as your job as a curator is to create a thread of understanding or a theme by selecting artworks, do not let your own message, your own theme shadow the actual work itself. By doing so, you may be guilty of perverting the work just so it suits your own ideas. Just let the art do the talking. #curatorialtips
