CURATOR
If you are the 
curator of the school art show, you choose which pieces will be in it and decide how they will be displayed. A curator is someone who manages an art collection or exhibit.
The kind of artwork a curator manages does not have to be the visual kind. You can curate a series of readings by selecting which authors read in it and who reads together. A curator is the person who gives the overall shape and feel to an art exhibit. In law, if you are the curator of someone's estate, you have been given legal power to manage it for someone who is too young or mentally unable to do it themselves.

Traditionally, a curator or keeper of a cultural heritage institution (e.g., gallerymuseumlibrary, or archive) is a content specialist charged with an institution's collections and involved with the interpretation of heritage material.

A question that arises frequently in museums:

How do curators decide what to display?
