The Exhibition Creator

It all starts with an idea

A museum curator’s first challenge is to dream up a concept for an exhibition. This idea could revolve around a group of people, a period of history, a place, a feeling, the works of a specific artist… the possibilities are limitless.

What is limited is the selection of objects and artworks available in the museum’s collection, and what will fit in the gallery space. Museum curators have to balance exhibition content with displays, which often involves compromise.
