Exhibition Experiments PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Exhibition Experiments free pdf Exhibition Experiments is a lively and imaginative anthology which considers experiments with museological form that challenge our understanding and experience of museums and exhibitions. Exploring examples from around the world, Exhibition Experiments investigates a range of topical issues which chart the frontier of museum studies. These include: the popularity and proliferation of museum experimentation, novel exhibitionary forms and their implications for knowledge and identity, transformations of architecture and design, narrative and navigation, juxtapositions of art with science and ethnography, the fate of conventional notions of "object" and "representation," and the disorientating yet stimulating consequences of all this for museum-going. This innovative collection brings together a mix of art historians, anthropologists, curators, and sociologists to question traditional disciplinary boundaries. Contributors tackle a range of examples of experimentalism from many different countries and exhibition spaces, and combine them with cutting-edge museum theory. The result is an exciting volume that captures the changes and challenging new possibilities facing museum studies.
