Abstract or Description

As part of a discussion exploring the possibilities of having a feminist curatorial practice in the art world today, Helena Reckitt gave a talk on curating and caring, and curating with care. Highlighting the current situation in which many who work in and engage with the curatorial sector feel uncared for, she discussed her work for the upcoming exhibition 'Habits of Care' at the University of Toronto's Blackwood Gallery, and the wider 'Take Care' curatorial research project that it is part of.
