Digital technologies are playing an increasingly instrumental role in guiding the curatorial and institutional strategies of contemporary art museums today. Designed around contextual studies of virtuality and the art of exhibition, this interdisciplinary volume applies practice-based research to a broad range of topics, including digital mediation, spatial practice, the multimedia museum, and curatorial design. Rounding out the volume are case studies with accompanying illustrations.

“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.”
