The post comes in response to a lecture put on by the popular Creative Mornings event series in Brooklyn by artist and TED-Talker Jonathan Harris, who argued, “Curation is replacing creation as a mode of self-expression.”
You Are Not a Curator, You Are Actually Just a Filthy Blogger "Curation is replacing creation as a mode of self-expression." – Jonathan Harris @jjhnumber27 #creativemornings— Tina Roth Eisenberg (@swissmiss) June 1, 2012 As a former actual curator, of like, actual art and whatnot, I think I'm fairly well positioned to say that you folks with your blog and your Tumblr and your whatever are not actually engaged in a practice of curation.
