The Artist as Curator
is a serial publication that examines a 
profoundly influential but still understudied 
phenomenon, a history that has yet to be written: 
the fundamental role that artists have played as 
curators. Taking the ontologically ambiguous 
thing we called "the exhibition" as a critical 
medium, artists have often in the process 
radically rethought the conventional form of the 
exhibition as such. This project is about 
precisely those exhibitions.


Issue #10 an insert in 
Magazine #51

This is the last installment of The Artist as 
Curator, a serial publication* examining the 
fundamental role artists have played as curators, 
from the postwar period to the present, edited by 
Elena Filipovic, that appeared as a special 
insert in Mousse over the past two years. In this 
issue, Natalie Musteate discusses Womanhouse 
(1972) by Judy Chicago, Miriam Schapiro, and the 
CalArts Feminist Art Program, while Ekaterina 
Degot addresses Avdey Ter-Oganyan's Toward the 
Object from 1992. This installment is realized in 
partnership with the Centre d'art Contemporain 
Genève and Museo Marino Marini, Florence. 

A complete anthology of the series will be published in the Spring 2016.
