January 29-30 New Curator
Maybe it’s because she got her start in music …as a singer ….that Mireille Eagan compares curating to that of a playing bass.
It’s an effective comparison…She says if she’s doing her job correctly, you shouldn’t ‘hear’ her playing…but you ‘feel’ the beat and structure that she’s laid down.
Mireille Eagan is the new curator of Canadian Art at The Rooms. She’s just moved here from the Conferation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown.
I met her this week at The Rooms and asked her about her childhood career as a singer - her voice can STILL be heard in the theme song for the TV show Katie and Obie.
