A curator (from Latin: curare, meaning "to take care") is a manager or overseer. Traditionally, a curator
or keeper of a cultural heritage institution (i.e., gallery, museum, library or archive) is a content-specialist
charged with an institution's collections and involved with the interpretation of heritage material.
In contemporary art, the title curator is given to a person who selects and often interprets works of art.

The very definition of the real becomes: that of which it is possible to give an equivalent reproduction.
The real is not only what can be reproduced, but that which is always already reproduced.
The hyper real. ---Jean Baudrillard
