“Sometimes a book has such an original premise, you can’t help but be intrigued …”

Globe and Mail  Jade Colbert, Aug. 12, 2016

The Globe and Mail‘s Jane Colbert writes: “This is a highly inventive and intellectually rewarding approach to thinking about the world.”

The National Post‘s Robert Fulford welcomes Curatorial Dreams as a “ground-breaking” book, attentive to “how museums affect people and how they are treated in popular culture.”

In Art Libraries Society of North America, Maria Gonzales writes, “The essays expand the curatorial imagination to empathically and collectively intervene, inspire, and heal.”

International Journal of Heritage Studies describes Curatorial Dreams as “an ambitious pronouncement on ‘civically-engaged scholarship’ … a must-read for museum studies scholars and practitioners alike.”

And finally, an appreciative Italian review in Artribune.
