“Through his act of global metacurating, Terry Smith places different and sometimes contradictory curatorial practices and attitudes into a panorama that fascinates and intellectually engages the reader. It is a must-read for everybody who wants to understand the inner logic of contemporary art processes.” –Boris Groys, Global Distinguished Professor of Russian and Slavic Studies, New York University
“Smith’s book is undoubtedly, the first one to attempt a mapping of the elusive terrain of curating from a broad and solid, over-arching yet critical perspective, providing the reader with insightful distinctions and highly perceptive findings of key curatorial accomplishments of the last two decades.”
–Mari Carmen Ramírez, Wortham Curator of Latin American Art and Director, International Center for the Arts of the Americas, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
