Thanks to twitter I found out about the book I mentioned in the previous post, and thanks to twitter I was able to follow David Gauntlett and read his recommendation for the Tate's blog: http://blog.tate.org.uk/, which is indeed well worth checking out for an insight into how they work behind the scenes at Tate.
As part of our group project at Newlyn one of the roles i've been given is of marketing and publicity, and it's for that reason i've set up a new twitter account for the MA Curatorial Practice group. At the moment i'm still waiting for the group to discuss how we can best use this, but in the meantime if you want to add us/me and wait for updates we can be found here UCFcurators.
I'll be updating this blog with news about our show as it comes together, but we may well decide to set up a blog specifically for documenting the exhibition- what do you think? Is a blog all you need, or do websites show that you are more serious about what you do? I love blogs, I love the immediacy of them and the informality, but it's been pointed out to me that perhaps I should be more professional in my on-line persona- any thoughts?
