I have long supported the notion that what is done by Kottke, Gruber, and so many other bloggers can be considered curation, and have intended to write an article about it. However, I discovered that it had already been done, to much the same detail as I would have, in a wonderful 2010 “epic poem” by Erin Kissane (via Poynter).
If you’re interested in reading more, I highly recommend Brian O’Doherty’s “Inside the White Cube”, Paul O’Neill’s “The Co-Dependent Curator”1, and Sarah Cook’s “New Media in the White Cube and Beyond”.
You can find this in the November 2005 issue of Art Monthly, or on EBSCO Host. ↩︎
