Exhibitionary Cultures

To celebrate the coinciding in 2017 of the Venice Biennale, documenta, and Skulptur Projekte Münster, Journal of Visual Culture is thrilled to announce the online publication of ‘Exhibitionary Cultures’:
 
journals.sagepub.com
Subscription and open access journals from SAGE Publishing, the world’s leading independent academic publisher.
 
 
It’s the most recent Journal of Visual Culture Reader, a virtual themed issue, which includes material assembled from JVC’s extensive archives.
 
With the support of our publisher Sage, and all the contributors, you’ll find here – all free of charge – a wonderful array of contributions by artists, architects, academics and critics, curators, and museum and gallery educators.
 
Contributors write on subjects as wide-ranging as the 55th Venice Biennale, the American Museum of Natural History, the Guangzhou Triennial, the Buenos Aires commons, South Africa’s Apartheid Museum, documenta12, Maison des Civilisations et de L’unité Réunionnaise, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Singapore Biennale, and the Paris Universal Exposition of 1900!
 
With stunning insights into curatorial practice, the contemporaneity of history, institutions as discursive propositions, political protest, visual education, and mobile visualities, this Journal of Visual Culture Reader will interest anyone enthralled by museums, galleries, and festivals, Curatorial Studies, Museology, and the visual, material, and spatial configurations of our exhibitionary cultures.
