The ‘curator of research’ is an artist-curator with responsibility for progressive research communication.
An artist makes artworks, thinking hard about communicating through their chosen media. In addition to this behaviour, an artist-curator thinks technically about how, why, where and when artworks (or outputs) will be consumed by an audience.
When it comes to knowledge transfer, presentation and engagement it’s the translators, facilitators and organisers of the world that can provide the final pieces of the puzzle.
Imagine if overnight manufacturer’s outputs could only be found in written form in libraries and the knowledge economy took over all advertising and the high street. The thought of that illustrates how unbalanced those two economies are in their relationship with publics.
