A deep dive into the career of the internationally celebrated curator and cofounder of Parkett. Swiss curator, art historian, editor and author Bice Curiger (born 1948) is primarily known for cofounding and editing the contemporary art magazine Parkett in 1984. Curiger has been a central protagonist of the international art world, holding coveted curatorial positions at the Kunsthaus Zürich (1993–2013), Venice Biennale (2011) and the Foundation Vincent van Gogh (2013–present). She has also written on numerous artists, including Meret Oppenheim, Rebecca Warren, Sigmar Polke, Niko Pirosmani and Nicole Eisenman. C Is for Curator provides an overview of her career with documentation and commentary on the many exhibitions she has curated, from Frauen sehen Frauen (Zurich, 1975) to the 2011 Venice Biennale to her current work at the Fondation Vincent van Gogh in Arles. The book includes appreciations from artists and curators such as Katharina Fritsch, Kathy Halbreich, Thomas Hirschhorn, Massimiliano Gioni, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Nicholas Serota and Philip Ursprung.
