Exhibitions have become the medium through which most art becomes known and assessed. But the art exhibition is an increasingly critical and unstable category. Constantly reshaped by artists and curators, the exhibition has become both a prominent and diverse part of contemporary culture. Thinking About Exhibitions presents a multi-disciplinary anthology of writings on exhibition practice by curators, critics, artists, sociologists and historians from North America, Europe and Australia. Texts in the collection are grouped in sections which focus on the history of the exhibition, forms of staging and spectacle, and questions of curatorship, spectatorship and narrative. As well as critical essays, the anthology includes exhibition proposals, dialogues, position papers, case studies, polemic articles and interviews.
