Take part in the curatorial process as Timothy Young, Curator of Modern Collections at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale, casts an eye over the Artspace Flat File with a mind to the core function of curating: selecting and bringing together. Works are presented in groups of three with the directive to the viewer to “pick two”—making the final curatorial decision in the mind’s eye.

This exhibition was organized to coincide with the larger group exhibition, Library Science.
