The recent development of curatorship as a museological practice, as well as its affirmation as an autonomous field of research, has brought important transformations to the practices, methodologies and models of both Art History and Art Criticism. It is not a confron- tation or an opposition, but a transformation of the configuration of the territories of each of these disciplines.
These deferrals have established an understanding of art that helped charge the art exhibition with ethical and political values beyond distinct notions of the aesthetic and the nonaesthetic. The fact that the integration of critique in the form of guides, wall texts, panel discussions and screenings, have long raised debates about the art exhibition’s shift from the aesthetic to the didactic, lets us ask about the current legitimization of “common goods” (Tyzlik-Carver) within the expanding network between artistic/ curatorial, discursive/academic, and participatory/political projects. One popular strategy is rhetoric as “learning from.../unlearning” (see e.g. the current documenta) and “test run” (see Latour) referring to the uncertainties and insecurities of the global crisis that demands new methods and concepts.
The displacement of curatorial practices from a focus on the ideas of style, authorship and historical period, to a broader political and expanded idea of exhibition, has consequences that must be identified and discussed. Transformations are verified not only in the need to redefine the different fields of the disciplines dedicated to the visual arts, but also to revise the idea of museum, art and artist.
