friends, a question:
it sometimes happens that artists work as curators; it also
occasionally happens that these curator artists choose their own
artistic work for their exhibitions or programmes.
in my view, this looks bad and should not happen, i personally wished
that there was a 'code of conduct for curatorial work' that said: 'if
you curate a project, you don't select your own work for it (not even
if you are a member of a curatorial team'.
i know that some practising artists (who also curate) see this
differently, for them there is no ethical problem in selecting their
own work if it fits into a specific project or conceptual framework.
what do people think about this?
