I have something I can relate, maybe not so much for curators, but more for art critics.
If you have 11 minutes to spare, I really hope you listen to a piece by the late, great, writer, Jim Carroll, Titled Tiny Tortures.
Direct link to the mp3 is here http://catholicboy.com/sounds/Jim-Ca...y-Tortures.mp3
Taken from the page (Jim Carroll's web site) http://www.catholicboy.com/roach.php You can also click on the audio link on that page.
That'd pretty much sum it up for me about art critics.
