56th Street Round Table: Art of Curation
Friday, July 27, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Summer in the City series
Whether in paintings or symphonies, printed words or pixels, the careful process of selection is, in itself, an art. But what, really, is curation, and what is its purpose? How does one anticipate what their audience wants to see? By bringing together our panelists, each "curators" in extremly varied and perhaps non-traditional ways, we'll learn more about their professions and the creative selection process.
