Curating the Contemporary (CtC) is a meeting place for discussions on contemporary art and its practices. It functions as a platform and resource for an international community of artists, curators, museologists and other specialists, sharing diverse perspectives in the format of exhibition reviews, interviews, previews, special features, academic pieces and creative texts.
CtC was established in October 2013 and has since grown as an experimental publisher, through the collaboration with different contributors and institutions. We pride ourselves on being an unbiased and inclusive organisation, welcoming proposals for content from people of any background and profession.
CtC is continually evolving.
