Museum Director
A curator (from Latin: cura, meaning "to take care")[1] is a manager or overseer. Traditionally, a curator or keeper of a cultural heritage institution (e.g., gallery, museum, library, or archive) is a content specialist charged with an institution's collections and involved with the interpretation of heritage material. A traditional curator's concern necessarily involves tangible objects of some sort—artwork, collectibles, historic items, or scientific collections. More recently, new kinds of curators have started to emerge: curators of digital data objects and biocurators.Contents1 Curation scope 2 Education and training 3 Technology and society 4 See also 5 References 6 Further reading 7 External linksCuration scope[edit] In smaller organizations, a curator may have sole responsibility for acquisitions and even for collections care

William Kentridge
William Kentridge
William Kentridge
(born 28 April 1955) is a South African artist best known for his prints, drawings, and animated films. These are constructed by filming a drawing, making erasures and changes, and filming it again. He continues this process meticulously, giving each change to the drawing a quarter of a second to two seconds' screen time. A single drawing will be altered and filmed this way until the end of a scene. These palimpsest-like drawings are later displayed along with the films as finished pieces of art.[1]Contents1 Early life and career 2 Work2.1 Prints and drawings 2.2 Animated films 2.3 Opera 2.4 Tapestries 2.5 Sculpture 2.6 Murals3 Family 4 Films 5 Exhibitions 6 Collections 7 Awards 8 Art market 9 Notes 10 References 11 External linksEarly life and career[edit] Kentridge was born in Johannesburg
