The Act of Curate

Q: Why don't you pursue a career as a curator?

A: I'd rather not become one of those parading assholes who make contemporary art seem bigger and more splendid than it actually is.

Q: But isn't that the point of art museums?
A: Not to exclude humanity. To bring us all together in contemplation. Unfortunately, in the last century or so art has become vulgar in its search to sacrementalise the self, and destroy its own virtue. We've resorted to jackhammering gallery floors, inducing panic and generally acting stupid about it all.

Why Don't We Create Art Like This Anymore?
