    Thanks Adrian This is a succinct compendium of tasks required in curating exhibits for public view I have drawn out data on organizing, shipping, insuring, lighting and promotion of the work for starters It s a great reference, well highlighted and researched.

    This book is very detailed in many aspects, and it has been very helpful for I began this journey with very little knowledge of what a curator was responsible for other than arranging artwork for an exhibition.
