A recent story in City Beat about new approaches to exhibitions at the CAC has excited my interests in the direction of local arts and artists. Focusing more on single artist shows and less on thematic exhibitions I think will have an interesting effect on our local art scene. Of course, most anything that shows at the CAC can influence artists not only here in Cincinnati but across the country. What we often forget though is the influence of the curator to present artistic ideas to the viewer. The curator determines the parameters of the artistic discussion. Raphaela Platow’s decision to refocus on the work of individual artists may be dictated by the museum space, but she no doubt sees the potential to inspire the local artists to engage their own works as well.
