The Curator's Perpective is an itinerant public discussion series that features international curators who distill current happenings in contemporary art, including the artists they are excited by, exhibitions that have made them think, and their views on recent developments in the art world. These programs are prepared for radio and posted online by ARTonAIR.org in partnership with ICI.
