A museum curator is by definition always multitasking. He or she has to collect, to research, to exhibit, to publish, to supervise restorations, to educate, to communicate, to travel as a courier, to teach, to design exhibition installations, to advise security, to answer to enquiries, to manage and to organize—all that with a marvelous flexibility. This lecture deals with the experience and fieldwork of a curator in a major European museum.

A former curator at the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, Belgium, Dominique Marechal has been curator of 19th century paintings at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium since 1999 and of the Antoine Wiertzmuseum in Brussels since 2015. A specialist in Neoclassicism, he publishes on Belgian 19th century painting and on art in and from Bruges.
