& # 39; A curator boyfriend is the hottest accessory for 2020


with JLaw's nuptials to the art world cookie Cooke Maroney behind her, and the recent announcement of Jenny Slate's engagement Ben Shattuck created a new boyfriend paradigm, which inspired us all to spend more time in the gallery, and spend less time in the pubs.

Unlike archetypes of boyfriends in the past – the Investment Banker, the Silicon Valley Tech Guy, the artist / freelance videographer / professional plant owner – the curator & # 39; s a breath of fresh air and offers plenty of attractive features that challenge the existing stereotypes of the dating pool.

The Curator has qualities that include, but are not limited to: the business ability to navigate the high-priced art market, enough sensitivity to appreciate Marina Abromovic's latest performance, and the opportunity to collaborate with Stavros Niarchos on a boat to party. They are well-read, secular, and are engaged in the formation of critical dialogues of our time. The kind of man you can discuss with post-humanism, who comments on the decor while he orders you a taxi, but lets the account split.

We are about to enter a new decade, and being self-conscious and socially conscious has never been more attractive. Someone who can point to a favorite sculpture of Louise Bourgeois or be brought to tears to look at an El Anatsui collection not only keeps in touch with his emotions, but also likes broader social , geopolitical and cultural issues. & # 39; A curator may still haunt you, but it's probably because he's doing something legitimately interesting with his time, like looking at the foot of the Himalayas.

Yeah, a lot of guys that are not Curators also fit this description: Artists / musicians, architects, professors, writers, furniture makers, doctors, usually cool sensitive dudes. But unlike the Curator, these careers have the potential to be lonely and isolating.

& # 39; A curator enjoys talking to people on a daily basis – resulting in a much more social (read: nice! Well-adjusted!) Appointment prospect.

Ultimately, the increased adaptation of art to art has a slight effect in the taste that is the most distinctive and attractive quality of all. Good taste is what probably allowed 21-year-old Vito Schnabel (the OG Cute Curator of the early & # 39; 00s) to date the much older Demi Moore, later Heidi Klum, and more recently Amber Heard. Good taste does not listen to Chris Brown, leave six packs in your apartment or wear bad shoes. Sorry for that guy and every guy who does.
