Wall Street Journal: "Crowdsourcing makes everybody an art curator"


#1

Check out the article in the Wall Street Journal here.

“Not an art expert? Not a problem. Museums are increasingly outsourcing the curation of their exhibits to the public—sometimes even asking the crowd to contribute art, too. The institutions produce quick and often inexpensive shows that boost ticket sales. As crowdsourcing initiatives go mainstream, the roles of the museum and the artist are getting rethought. It’s no longer only the highly trained professionals who decide what belongs on the gallery wall, but the audience, too.”

I really don’t think this argument and logic has much weight, but ¯_(ツ)_/¯
