The Curator Diaries Week 2: Jumping right in

On Sunday I learned about the need to create and show work to an audience with Sarah Castillo. We talked about how she shares her mind with the collective Más Rudas, and provides no distinguishing line between her personal practice and the well-respected group of artists. Just an hour or so later, I visited with Chad Dawkins and learned how his meticulous drawings are transferring into an interest in time-based media, specifically through radio and popular culture. Then he refreshed my memory with John Berger’s Ways of Seeing, an important text that would pop up more than once over the course of the month.

It will take almost one full week to process my visits, and I will spend that week churning over all the information I learned from everyone I met. In the end, I am no closer to a resolution on what the show will be or how it will develop, but the energy and excitement of talking with artists and being welcomed into the private spaces of their studios is a privilege that I do not take for granted. Each and every conversation is a connection that I value, and at the end of the day CAM is providing the impetus for connecting artists with curators.
