A Round Table

Within the framework of the

Ideas in the World: The Humanities and Active Citizenship

International Workshop

For Invitees Only


What civic role do curators have in presenting the arts to the public? What role do deep ideas and insights from the humanities (broadly construed) have in this process? To what extent may we view the role of curators as mediators, interpreters and translators, positioned between art, ideas and the practice and experience of the viewer? What distinguishes curation from other forms of public engagement with ideas?
