“Curators only wear black.” They sometimes look like hip lawyers. And they like to drink.
One exception to the all-black rule is to add a touch of white. After all, you don’t want to attend your exhibition opening looking as if you’re going to a funeral, unless the art show is already doomed to failure.
Even though I abide by the all-black rule most of the time, I don’t own much white – that’s why I just bought these high-waisted leather shorts from eBay.
