Here are some things we learned about curating art (in our own words mostly)...
Know the art - Pick themes and stuff and explore work that fits together like a puzzle with all kinds of strange wacky pieces. If you see everything you'll start to know what is good and what is just paper mache and full of hot air (that is happening in Morro's room right now...).
Know the artist - Don't pick a newbie (like Morro) to fill a whole show. Do your research and see the history of the person so you know if they can deliver the goods.
Layout is important - This does not mean that you get to pick your favourite piece and put it in your favourite place. It means that you have to think about lights and shadows and the spot in the room that everyone sees and the eye catcher of a sculpture , you know the one that has some va va voom so when people walk in they are like "wow, that hit me... you know, just hit me.. in a good way".
Also Lindy told us that the best part of her job is when its all empty and quiet and she gets to decide where the new pieces for a show are going to live. So basically that sounds like its own kind of art which is pretty cool.
By the way it's an awesome gallery if you want to check it out: thealgreengallery.com
