Description

The Museum Curator's Guide is practical reference book for emerging arts and heritage professionals working with a wide range of objects (including fine art, decorative arts, social history, ethnographic and archaeological collections), and explores the core work of the curator within a gallery or museum setting.

Commencing with a clear overview of and introduction to current material culture and museum studies theories, Nicola Pickering then discusses their practical application with collections. She considers the role of the curator, their duties, interaction with and care or preservation of objects and the myriad ways objects can be catalogued, displayed, moved, arranged, stored, interpreted and explained in a present-day museum.

The Museum Curator's Guide represents an essential and lasting resource for all those working with the collection, preservation and presentation of objects, including students of collections management and curatorship; current gallery and museum professionals; and private collectors.
