Summary
"Presents a multidisciplinary anthology of writings on current exhibition practice by curators, critics, artists, sociologists and historians form North America, Europe and Australia. It marks out the emergence of new discourses surrounding the exhibition and illustrates the urgency of the debates centred in and fostered by exhibitions today. Texts have been grouped ... in sections which focus on the history of the exhibition, forms of staging and spectacle, and questions of curatorship, spectatorship and narrative. These writings ... investigate exhibitions in settings outside of the traditional gallery as well as innovative work in extending cultural debates within the museum ... fully ilustrated with over ninety black-and-white photographs and includes a bibliography on the subject of art exhibitions"--Page i
