Museum and Independent Curators Lists

Large museums have many curators, with each assigned to a specific art discipline, including
prints and drawings, photography, painting, sculpture, visual art, modern and contemporary art,
decorative art, fine art crafts, architecture and design, textiles, cross disciplinary platforms,
performing arts, film and video, and new media. In smaller museums, one curator might
handle all disciplines. A curator’s job is multifaceted. In addition to curating exhibitions,
responsibilities can also include overseeing a specific collection, and writing catalog essays
and other exhibition support materials. Museum curators plan exhibitions sometimes
as far in advance as four years. In addition to selecting artists for solo exhibitions,
curators arrange thematic group exhibitions that often feature the work of many artists.
Curators also arrange traveling exhibitions. Independent curators are freelancers and work
on a consulting basis for corporations, art galleries, museums, and alternative spaces.
