"We are proud to present this special issue dedicated to critical curating, a subject of current interest in the art world. As the field of curating includes both academic research and curatorial practice, guest editors Marie Fraser and Alice Ming Wai Jim have assembled a mix of academic research papers and curatorial statements that consider ethical and progressive ways to exhibit artistic practices that are often excluded from galleries and museums (works by feminist, LGBTQ2S+, Indigenous, and visible minority artists, or art that targets difficult issues)."
"The authors brought together in this issue—some emerging and others more established scholars—address these topics from different perspectives and suggest insights that both concern museum curatorial practices and other, more-radical or activist practices that question institutions, such as the museum, and their epistemologies. Their contributions show that critical curating can take place both inside and outside of institutions and the art system in general. Each text also contributes new examples."
