I had a dream the other night about being third up to pitch for a major art commission and the group before us used artists to act out their proposal. My team in contrast consisted of curators and a lighting designer – we looked at each other terrified and wished to pull out immediately. A common curator’s nightmare perhaps, wary one should be of ignoring artists in favour of a curatorial concept. Ignoring artists could never be an accusation aimed at the various ROSC committees. However the same committees could be accused of ignoring the growing trend of thematic exhibitions.
