Just as the artist’s sketches, revisions, and failures don’t usually hang on the wall next to the finished project, it isn’t often we get to see a curator’s notebooks, memos, or emails. SKETCHES illustrates what curatorial ideas look like when they are forming. Green Lantern published this book with the hope that arts administrators could pick it up, flip through its pages and become inspired. It is also for curious non-arts administrators, however — in these pages anyone can see the mess and process behind a final exhibition. This communal collection of “sketches” will pass ideas for exhibitions, organizational structures, or academic projects between colleagues and strangers in an effort to connect people and expand thinking on arts administration.
