This webinar will provide a forum to explore ethical conduct in the curatorial field. The ethics of certain aspects of curatorial work have long been topics of debate (de-accessioning, conflicts of interest in personal acquisitions, etc.), but new and ever more public ways of engaging with the world have raised new questions about what constitutes sound ethical conduct for a curator. What, for example, are the implications when a curator “likes” a commercial gallery exhibit on Facebook? This discussion will touch upon the traditional ethical debates as well as examine new ethical questions raised by changes in the field. Participants will benefit from the wisdom of two distinguished professionals who have deep experience navigating this complicated field.
