Curators: The practice of curating is flourishing. A rising number of exhibiting institutions and events are inviting curators to mount shows in their venues. Ever since Harald Szeemann was credited with inventing the genre in 1972, the role of independent curator has indeed undergone enormous changes, along with the issues related to the task. Not only are curators are quite visible when their exhibitions are presented but they are also the subject of increasing theoretical investigation, which testifies to the practice’s in-depth transformations. This themed section explores current curating conditions, in particular how the limits of artistic artmaking and exhibition as gestures are being redefined.

Theme contributors: Sophia Krzys Acord, Paul Ardenne, Louise Déry, Nathalie Desmet, Michèle Thériault and Jean-Philippe Uzel. Portfolio: guest curator Marie-Eve Beaupré.

Articles contributors: Geneviève Chevalier, Michel F. Côté, Gabriel Menotti and Victor Tupitsyn. Also, reviews by Katrie Chagnon, Catherine Cyr, Nathalie Desmet, Emily Falvey, Gabrielle Moser, Kathleen Ritter, Martine Rouleau, Thérèse St-Gelais and Anne-Marie St-Jean Aubre.
