Review Quotes
“The use of digital media is greatly impacting curatorial design of exhibitions in museums and galleries. In Virtuality and the Art of Exhibition, Vince Dziekan attempts to foster an understanding of how the curatorial design process has evolved to incorporate digital technology. . . . Academic libraries with museum studies programs or museum libraries that are new to incorporating multimedial pieces in their exhibits will benefit from this text.”
