The Curatorial Conundrum: What to Study? What to Research? What to Practice?
The Curatorial Conundrum: What to Study? What to Research? What to Practice?

The Curatorial Conundrum is a volume of essays that evolved out of the 2014 symposium “The Future Curatorial What Not And Study What, Conundrum,” organized by the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and the LUMA Foundation in collaboration with Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg, Afterall Books: Exhibition Histories, Central Saint Martins, University of London, and de Appel Arts Centre.

Extending the graphic identity that Project Projects designed for the symposium, the publication assigns three distinctive typefaces to the book’s three sections—Larish Neue for “What to Study?”; Julien for “What to Research?”; and Hermes for “What to Practice?”. The typefaces are arranged on vertically oriented title pages for each section and essay, creating a sense of variation that, in turn, suggests the diversity of contemporary curatorial practice.
