Investigating contemporary art curation the Hanging offence series has interviewed a number of gallerists, large and small, from around the globe. Despite the broad democratisation of art curation enabled by digital media it has meant that published biographies and mission statements are amended, cleaned up, sanctified, audience-targetted, retailored and whitewashed.
As a result art curator history is in dangerous of losing the flavour of it’s transient nature. Hanging offence is an effort to capture curators as they are at the time.
There is an honesty to saying ‘this is what we’re doing now, it may change, but for now this is us’.
