Almost everything can be “curated” these days—playlists, outfits, gift baskets, even salads. So what does it really mean to be an independent curator? On this episode, we’re joined by curator Jacqueline Mabey to discuss the ups and downs of a career that’s not tied to a single institution.
This podcast is hosted by Artsy Associate Editor Isaac Kaplan, joined for this edition by Deputy Editor Scott Indresick and independent curator Jacqueline Mabey. It was produced by Associate Editor Abigail Cain and Louis Sansano.
Intro music: “Something Elated” by Broke For Free
Additional music: “Wild Ones” by Jahzzar
