An activist group of artists, art workers, performers and independent curators fighting to get paid for making the world more interesting.
Not too long ago in Paris, an interesting group of young curators formed C-E-C, the French Association for Curators. They've organized themselves --which takes much time and will, and all of that that comes with voluntary labor-- to advocate for rights for independent curators in France. The group appoints a leader, which is a temporary and rotating position within the group, so they can meet ends more efficiently. With only a year or so in the making, they've brokered some great things already. Certainly, the supports for the arts in France is different, but still, the work of C-E-C is exemplary. In any case, it's good to see what other interest groups in the field are doing, accomplishing and still fighting for. And to learn how they do and undo. This is C-E-C's website: www.c-e-a.asso.fr.
