This is one of those useful guides to good practice in those fields that are becoming increasingly professionalised. There was a time (and it may have been a very long time ago) when setting up an exhibition meant little more than hiring a space and renting some display panels. The term “curator” was applied more to museums than exhibitions.
Nowadays, there are all kinds of regulations, Health and Safety and insurance to consider, as well as responsibilities to exhibit owners and to visitors, who will expect more than an amateurish experience.
Adrian George is well-qualified to be your guide, having completed the RA’s prestigious Curating MA and worked at the New Museum in New York, Tates Modern and Liverpool and being currently employed as Deputy Director of the UK Government Art Collection.
This is a thorough and authoritative guide that will fulfil the needs of even the most demanding reader.
