Curiosity killed the cat or so they say. So what happens when the curator, a person who normally supervises an exhibit, relinquishes control to other curators with no guidance except to focus on a very broad genre of art: the figure. The result is the making of a curious curatorial mix of curators and artists that reflect what figurative work is being appreciated internally within the art community. The result is a fun, mini local survey of what is figurative art today.
