In this talk Professor Cousins discusses the history and practice of presenting artworks and objects in exhibitions. In spite of the contemporary fascination with curation, this is an overlooked discipline to which both Bove and Scarpa pay particular attention.

He has been Visiting Professor at Columbia University and is now Guest Professor at South Eastern University, Nanjing, China. Cousins has written extensively on psychoanalysis and the work of French philosopher Michel Foucault (1926-84).
