But there are important characters that have not only been faithful to such definition, but have also made important revolutions in the field of curating.
Changing the ways of representing as well as the relationships with artists, not limiting themselves to giving us an interpretation key, but being able to turn their exhibitions into perceptive experiences, philosophical journeys, deep and sometimes sentimental interpretations.
