"Thinking contemporary curating" is the first publication to comprehensively explore what is distinctive about contemporary curatorial thought. In five essays, art historian, critic, and theorist Terry Smith surveys the international landscape of current discourse; explores a number of exhibitions that show contemporaneity in present, recent, and past art; describes the enormous growth world-wide of exhibitionary infraestructure and the instability that haunts it; re-examines the phenomenon of artist-curators and curator-artists; and assesses a number of key tendencies in curating-such as the reimagined museum, the expanded exhibition, historicization and recuration, infraestructural activism, and engaged spectatorship-as responses to contemporary conditions.
