The art of curating

By spotogspindel | April 26, 2016

Making an art-exhibition is a pretty big job. The main part of it certainly being the making-process. But there are other, important parts as well. Like curating it, choosing which pieces to include and which to leave out, and where everything goes. (Especially when working with your own art when you have feelings connected to it). It can be exhausting with all the trying and failing. But oh-so-useful to learn. We´ve had several meetings, laying all the pieces out, trying to figure out a good placement-plan, discussing colors for the walls, and where to build a little stage. I have to admit, working with professional people in a museum is a true delight! They are so talented, dedicated and fun! And slowly things are coming together. This is exciting!


Below is a newspaper article about the exhibition. The title reads “This is how embroidery is going to survive”. No less.
