DID YOU KNOW?

PROMINENT LGBTQ CURATORS AT CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS AROUND THE WORLD

Curator.jpg

There are several successful LGBTQ art and museum curators at prominent cultural institutions and art galleries around the world. In essence, a curator is a keeper or guardian of important cultural heritage pieces, including collectibles, historic objects, art pieces, or scientific pieces. They thus represent important links between the past and today’s contemporary world.

It is a curator’s responsibility to carefully assess the importance and relevance of pieces to the historic narrative of the subject matter. If relevant, they acquire the piece to add to a collection of similar pieces which collectively convey a specific story. Curators often are required to interpret the meaning of a specific piece in the context of a period of time, then catalogue it and prepare it for presentation to the public. To accomplish this requires a specialization in their field of study.

Given the historic context in which a curator works, you can see the relevance of having LGBTQ representation in this professional field. It is important that curators maintain a position of academic standing that puts them above bias and censorship in their work of revealing the true historical narrative to the public. We have identified several LGBTQ individuals who are, or have been, prominent curators around the world.
