Pigeons on the Grass Alas: Contemporary Curators Talk about the Field

Published in: GIA Reader, Vol 25, No 1 (Winter 2014)

Edited by Paula Maricola and Peter Nesbett

2013, 111 pages, The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Philadelphia, PA

A convening in the form of a whimsically constructed conversation, this novel-sized volume is the product of an invitation by Pew staff to professional curators to answer questions about their work. Pigeons on the Grass Alas sketches a fairly complete picture of the field of curating now, touching on such topics as influences, daily practice, and the curator’s responsibility to society at large.
