UrbanCurators "frame" our rotting buildings

UrbanCurators is a clade of decay-fanciers who go around big cities, hanging elaborate, gilted gallery-style frames on the walls of rotting buildings to highlight the artistic, aesthetic qualities of our falling-down world.

Humans have for centuries sought after the grandeur of ruins that were once the glory of ancient cultures, recognizing them as windows into the lives of past civilizations. The Urban Curators project proposes that we should likewise cherish those ruins that reflect modern-day consumerism and industrialization, realizing them as vehicles by which we can gain insight into our own society
