Let me do that for you

"A curator once had to be assigned to specific collection—the word is rooted in the notion of caring for someone. In recent years, however, “curation” has been de-linked from any fixed array of things. A curator is no longer a warden of precious objects but a kind of freelance aesthetic concierge…. I’ve heard people say they curate their schedules and dinner parties."
