ABSTRACT
The author reflects on how the artists' artwork becomes the curator's raw material and offers information on how curators can make a good art exhibition. She highlights the vital areas that curators need in directing an art exhibit, such as proper selection of good venues, scheduling and having a clearly defined concept. She suggests that to have a successful exhibition, curators must respect the artwork of artists, get a detailed floor plan of the gallery and have an intelligent installation.
