Curation, or the art of selecting useful information to form meaningful collections, is the new buzzword that tech companies and media professionals have eagerly latched on to. But curation is a far more powerful and deeply relevant idea than we give it credit for. It answers the question of how we live in a world where problems are often about having too much, and shows how we keep growing in a world of excess. Acts of selecting, refining and arranging to add value help us overcome information overload. This book highlights the numerous places in which this simple but forceful skill is increasingly felt: in art and on the Web, but also in retail and manufacturing, high finance and government policy. CURATION is an exciting and wide-ranging work of business-oriented non-fiction incorporating the latest thinking in economics, technology, business strategy, complexity theory, media and psychology with strong narratives and big ideas. Through powerful personal stories about real jobs, lives, companies and industries fighting to thrive in crowded markets, it reveals how a little-used word from the world of museums became a crucial business strategy for the 21st century. Curation is one of the most gripping and unignorable business ideas for our time, and organisations and individuals who make the most of it will position themselves to grow.

Original essays offering fresh ideas and global perspectives on contemporary feminist art The term ‘feminist art’ is often misused when viewed as a codification within the discipline of Art History—a codification that includes restrictive definitions of geography, chronology, style, materials, influence, and other definitions inherent to Art Historical and museological classifications. Employing a different approach, A Companion to Feminist Art defines ‘art’ as a dynamic set of material and theoretical practices in the realm of culture, and ‘feminism’ as an equally dynamic set of activist and theoretical practices in the realm of politics. Feminist art, therefore, is not a simple classification of a type of art, but rather the space where feminist politics and the domain of art-making intersect. The Companion provides readers with an overview of the developments, concepts, trends, influences, and activities within the space of contemporary feminist art—in different locations, ways of making, and ways of thinking. Newly-commissioned essays focus on the recent history of and current discussions within feminist art. Diverse in scope and style, these contributions range from essays on the questions and challenges of large sectors of artists, such as configurations of feminism and gender in post-Cold War Europe, to more focused conversations with women artists on Afropean decoloniality. Ranging from discussions of essentialism and feminist aesthetics to examinations of political activism and curatorial practice, the Companion informs and questions readers, introduces new concepts and fresh perspectives, and illustrates just how much more there is to discover within the realm of feminist art. Addresses the intersection between feminist thinking and major theories that have influenced art theory Incorporates diverse voices from around the world to offer viewpoints on global feminisms from scholars who live and work in the regions about which they write Examines how feminist art intersects with considerations of collectivity, war, maternal relationships, desire, men, and relational aesthetics Explores the myriad ways in which the experience of inhabiting and perceiving aged, raced, and gendered bodies relates to feminist politics in the art world Discusses a range practices in feminism such as activism, language, education, and different ways of making art The intersection of feminist art-making and feminist politics are not merely components of a unified whole, they sometimes diverge and divide. A Companion to Feminist Art is an indispensable resource for artists, critics, scholars, curators, and anyone seeking greater strength on the subject through informed critique and debate.
