Go behind the scenes and be mentored by the best to find out what it’s really like and what it really takes to become a curator.

Esteemed journalist Holly Brubach takes listeners to the front lines to offer a candid portrait of the modern curatorial profession. Brubach shadows Elisabeth Sussman of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York to reveal how a top curator actually works. In Becoming a Curator, Brubach reveals the path to becoming a curator in today’s ultracompetitive art world, from education to exhibition.

Great book!

I finally managed to finish this audiobook. I thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling and how the author chose to go about writing Sussman's story. More importantly, I love the last chapter. It's a great way of closing off the book yet it keeps you wondering how successful yet humble Elizabeth was. Great read, would recommend it as something leisurely.
