Curating the Renaissance : Seminar session with Peta Motture, Senior Curator of Sculpture, V&A
What springs to mind when someone tells you they are a curator in an art and design Museum? Is there a difference between an academic art-historian and a curator? If you were a curator, how do you think you would spend your time?Based on case studies of work undertaken at the Victoria and Albert Museum, including the Medieval & Renaissance Galleries and a forthcoming book on the Culture of Bronze, this session will explore the role of a curator in researching and interpreting objects within their broader cultural context for a wide range of audiences.
