How many times have you heard the term “curate” in the past few years? But what exactly does it mean? Curating has been a key concept both in and outside the art world in the past few years, with the remit of what a curator does having changed and expanded with each new exhibition or biennale. With an emphasis on the "now" and the most recent exhibitions, this book examines the variety and richness of curating practices today, from public commissions such as Art Angel to experimental projects such as the Ghetto Biennale in Haiti, or the Rhizome digital archive.

Each highly illustrated case study is structured around an interview with the curator responsible for the show. The text both tells the story of the show’s making and fills in background information about the curator’s work.
