Title: Curating text and space in contemporary visual art : two art exhibitions as case studies
Synopsis:

The role of the curator is becoming increasingly demanding and multi-faceted, with being an aesthetician, educator, critic, art historian, audience developer, and negotiator amongst its many other roles. For most of the museum visitor appreciate contemporary art in the museum. Through the case study of two contemporary art exhibitions at the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) in 2010 where in-depth interviews with five curators and a museum programmer, together with visual analysis of two contemporary art exhibitions and textual analysis of the media release of the exhibition were used to investigate how curatorial practices, specifically on text and space, can enhance the educational experience for an adult in a contemporary art museum, this research concludes with the importance of a central theme or idea that anchors each exhibition for clear communication and how space and museum wall texts should relate back to this central theme to create an educational experience in the museum.
