IKT Lab:Curator without a parachute

Independent curators invited to create biennales or large exhibitions are often described (somewhat pejoratively) as having been "parachuted" into a project. What is the impact of this practice on the local art scene, on the exhibitions they create, and on their curatorial practice?

Florence Ostende (adjunct curator at Dallas Contemporary);
