A person who curates fashion, music, food or travel experiences is actually just choosing things, it has been confirmed.
A study has found that there is absolutely no need to use the word ‘curate’ outside a museum. “Our research showed that curating a playlist is entirely the same as going through a list of songs and picking out the ones you like,” lead researcher Jonathan Wells said today.
Wells said he was surprised by the findings. “We expected that a curated list of furniture items would somehow be different from a catalogue. It wasn’t”.
