There are many ways to approach the creation of an exhibition. One can rely heavily on object-based research for example, or opt for a more audience-oriented concept instead.
Prof. Dr. Pat Villeneuve and Ann Rowson Love (Florida State University) are researching the various approaches towards exhibition curation. They are inviting submissions for an upcoming book that presents a model of curation and illustrates it with exhibition examples from art and similar museums. Submissions from authors and teams (300 words) are welcomed.
The ‘Dimensions of Curation Competing Values Exhibition Model’ is built on a framework that recognizes multiple viewpoints on curation. It provides a way for museums to identify past curatorial practices, reflect intentionally on future approaches, and make changes, if desired, using the model as a road map.
Dimensions of Curation: Considering Competing Values for Intentional Exhibition Practices (working title) by Ann Rowson Love and Pat Villeneuve (eds. ) will be published by the American Alliance of Museums in 2023.
Please download the call for proposals for more information. The deadline is 28 January 2022.
