What led you to curatorial work?
I've liked museums
since I was a little kid. Some of my fondest memories were taking a bus
from Connecticut to come to the Met. I did some interning in museum
education departments, but it wasn't a good fit. I prefer curatorial
work, because it allows input into what's being shown.
Can you describe your job?
I facilitate anything and everything. I answer research inquiries from
collectors, coordinate loan letters, go through the Guggenheim's
holdings to find work to fill gaps in exhibitions, arrange for the
evaluation of works...
Is there any relationship between the curator and the artists, when curating shows of living artists?
