National Museums Liverpool Allows You to Ask the Curator: Discover What Goes on Behind the Scenes

LIVERPOOL.- Ever wondered what it’s like to handle ancient artefacts, care for unusual bugs or produce an exhibition of wonderful artworks? National Museums Liverpool is giving the public an opportunity to quiz curators and discover more about their fascinating jobs.

Posting your questions is easily done on the National Museums Liverpool website at www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/curator/ . The best questions will be selected and posed to the curator in a video interview which will also be shown on the website.

The first curator to be featured is Pauline Rushton, curator of costumes and textiles. Pauline is responsible for National Museums Liverpool’s huge range of costumes, from gorgeous Edwardian frocks to punky Vivienne Westwood suits. She curated one of the Walker Art Gallery ’s most popular exhibitions, A Passion for Fashion in 2006 and has most recently curated photography exhibition Sound and Vision, currently on display at National Conservation Centre and A Sweet Life, on show at Sudley House.

National Museums Liverpool has a wealth of different curators that reflect the diversity and richness of the collections. Ask the curator is a unique opportunity to discover what goes on behind the scenes of your favourite museum or gallery.
