Loveday, Donna

Curating design : context, culture and reflective practice - 2022 Bloomsbury Visual Arts, London : - xi, 247 p. ; ill. (b & w), 24 cm

Includes bibliographical references and index.

Curators have become much more than just 'keepers' of a collection, with a remit to create narrative and experiential exhibitions as well as develop the museum's role as a space for learning. Donna Loveday explores how design has come to the fore in curatorial practice, with new design museums opening around the world as well as blockbusting exhibitions of fashion and popular culture. Featuring case studies and interviews with leading practitioners from international museums, Loveday examines the history of collecting and display of designed objects, highlighting the changing role of the curator in addition to contemporary challenges and best practices.
