Where Curating Is: the artist-as-curator and the curator-as-artist in Ukraine from the 1980s to the 2010s
Kateryna Nosko, Valeria Lukyanets
The book Where Curating Is: the artist-as-curator and the curator-as-artist in Ukraine from the 1980s to the 2010s collects essays and interviews covering a range of issues – collective and individual – that concern curating in a Ukrainian context. These texts emerged from discussions between the author-compilers of the book and curators and contemporary artists from cities across Ukraine. They aim to show the peculiarities of curating from the perspective of the artist-as-curator, without ignoring the counterpart to this figure: the curator-as-artist.
