Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

These days you can curate everything from a prize-winning art exhibition to a cheese board, but what does the term's growing popularity mean for the skills it represents? David Balzer's book, 'Curationism: How Curating Took Over the Art World and Everything Else' looks at the definition of the word curator through art history and around the world. In this trio of discussions he'll explore what curation's newfound popularity says about culture's relationship with taste, as well as introducing its professionals, from Subway's 'sandwich artists' to the powerful names who rule the art world. Free tickets for April 28's event should be reserved on emailingpiccadilly@waterstones.com, book £4 tickets for April 29 here and £10 tickets for April 30 here.
