For this exhibition, artists were given the brief to produce work that took as its source of inspiration the curators of the Centre of Attention. Artists unwilling or unable to bend their practice to this end were not able to take part in this show. 20 artists accepted, producing work in a wide variety of different medium.

In this show we aim at problematizing the phenomenon of the curator and elements of the artist/curator relationship. Is the curator a personal shopper? Does being immersed in art history and theory and the left wing bias of art world academism compel curators to promote old paradigms and to remain in their comfort zone of prejudice not accepting that the fault lines of culture have moved on? Is the curator a parasite?
