Everything now is curated

From The Guardian: “Contemporary curating has become an absurdity. Outfits are curated. Salads are curated. Twitter feeds are curated. Bennington College in Vermont invites prospective students to curate their applications. Lorde was appointed ‘sole curator’ of the most recent ‘Hunger Games’ film’s soundtrack. Everyone is a curator these days. Lakehead Superior State University in Michigan has placed ‘curator,’ ‘curated’ and ‘to curate’ on its 2015 list of banished words. ‘Since when does one “curate” a list of wine or a selection of salami?” asks StiperGuy at Chowhound.com. ‘You curate a museum.’”
