Curating has dramatically changed over the last decade, becoming more and more creative, imaginative, and even artistic. The role of a curator is expanding, becoming user-friendly and reaching beyond the walls of institutions. It has evolved beyond the selection and the placement of art or artifacts in a space; it has become about empowering the audience, collaboration, communication, and innovation. It often allows the audience to encounter unexpected works of art in unexpected places. We will discuss the key concepts and distinctions that are central to the understanding curatorial innovation within which exhibitions and the rest of the world operate hand-in-hand.

Jaewook Lee is an artist, writer, amateur scientist, semi-philosopher, and sometime curator. Lee takes exhibition-making as his primary medium. He is the recipient of the 2014 Sindoh Artist Support Program (SINAP), and currently teaches at the School of Visual Arts(SVA) in New York City. His projects can be found at: www.jaewooklee.com
