For The Exhibitionist’s second edition of “La Critique,” in which contributors are asked to reflect on the preceding three issues of the journal, the editors decided to create the issue entirely through conversations in order to elicit dynamic and frank responses between a diverse group of curators who may not have been previously familiar with each other’s work.
In the first Response section, six curators discuss their takes on the collection today. Pairings include Frances Morris and Manuel Borja-Villel, both at the forefront of reinventing the traditional structure of the museum collection; Julieta Gonzalez and Suhanya Raffel expound upon the opportunities and challenges of collection building in institutions at the geographic margins of the art world; finally, Pieranna Calvachini and Judith Dolkart both work in institutions in which the entire museum, not just the collection, is dictated by the taste and personality of a long-since-dead founding patron.
