'This anthology offers a unique perspective into the roles, functions, and designations of the artist as curator in contemporary artistic practice. Through a discussion of case studies, it identifies specific motivations, methods, and typologies of the artist-curator and in doing so, brings together practice-based research, museological, curatorial, archival research and theory to address a relatively under-researched topic. The case studies presented here reflect on the artist-curator in multiple manifestations and explore this phenomenon as a creative process, a research methodology and a critical strategy.' - from the back cover
