C-E-A is in the process of preparing a publication aligned with its research activities regarding the status and practices of exhibition curators today in France. It will be based on the sociological inquiry of Laurent Jeanpierre and Séverine Sofio in 2009, which was followed by a second inquiry based on a series of interviews conducted by Isabelle Mayaux.
The book will cover:
– a summary of the inquiry and university articles (outside the sociological scope) on the subject,
– a series of original articles by exhibition curators (both French and international) on the professional practice and its economic and social conditions,
– a selection of talks from three events organized by C-E-A: in 2009 at the Pavillon Carré de Baudouin, in 2011 at the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard and in June 2013 at Palais de Tokyo.
The publication is expected for 2015 and will be in French.
