A: My choices have to excite me & make sense to me. I also like to eavesdrop in the galleries & try to see what others see. -JK #AskACurator
Q from @malimelibu on Instagram: "For whom do you curate? For yourselves? For what kind of public?” #AskACurator
A: A newspaper. You have to be like a sponge. What people are feeling now also affects how we relate to art of the past. -JK #AskACurator
Q from @cosmicona on Instagram: “Which is the most important book (in your opinion) for a curator?" #AskACurator
A: How long is a piece of string? Time for me always repays the effort. Sometimes you just want to say hi to an old friend. -JK #AskACurator
Q from @selvasterstallone on Instagram: "How long are you supposed to stand in front of a painting?” #AskACurator
A: Likes & dislikes are a great starting point. What moves you/others? Why? It's up to the audience to agree or disagree. -JK #AskACurator
Q from @bekisforlovers on Instagram: "How do you keep your opinions of art out of choosing what to hang for a show?" #AskACurator
A: An action, object, image or space w/ a point of view. Might be the way someone does their hair or a funny advert. -JK #AskACurator
Q from @linocc_ on Instagram: "What do you personally think art is? (no quoting allowed)." #AskACurator
A: Depends on projects. Prob. 6 wks/yr. The rest of the time at my desk w/ visits to library, galleries, museums, studios. -SS #AskACurator
Q from @LaurenTrantino on Instagram: "How much travel is involved with your job? And how much time is spent at a desk?” #AskACurator
A: Song Dong: art shipment rerouted by weather, diverted to train, delayed @ customs. A race to the finish but so worth it! -SS #AskACurator
Q from @chrisawilliams on Instagram: "What is the most difficult show you've curated? Or the most nerve-racking?” #AskACurator
A: I love seeing artworks that I've chased down, researched, and advocated for make it into the galleries. -SS #AskACurator
Q from @charlottegrayson on Instagram: “What is the most rewarding part of your job?” #AskACurator
A: A toughie! For collection, @MOT_art_museum in Tokyo is full of surprises. For experience, nothing beats @Fond_Beyeler. -SS #AskACurator
Q from @BarryBriggs on Instagram: "Other than MOMA, what museum gives you the most pleasure or is most stimulating?” #AskACurator
A: As long as you want to! For me, it could be 10 minutes w/ a Hieronymus Bosch, and 10 seconds-or less-with its neighbor. -SS #AskACurator
Q from @selvasterstallone on Instagram: "How long are you supposed to stand in front of a painting?” #AskACurator
