Hello there, CRUMB.
This is a call for submissions to XHIBITOR, an ongoing research project
about transmedia and art exhibitions.
Though the term transmedia was popularized in 2003, it echoes
avant-garde exhibition design strategies theorized by Herbert Bayer and
Frederick Kiesler nearly seventy years prior. This project considers
transmedia within the trajectory of art history, questioning how it can
be employed as a curatorial methodology. It consists of four parts:
EBOOK: Establishes a theoretical and historical framework for transmedia
art exhibitions, tracing back core concepts of transmedia to Bauhaus and
De Stijl notions of interactivity and immersion.
DATABASE: Presents an archive of past and present exhibition histories,
classified according to a transmedia taxonomy.
TOOLKIT: Resources blog updated with articles, studies, presentations,
academic texts and multimedia educational content.
VISUAL MAPS: Data mapping charts and visualizations representing
exhibitions, taxonomies and related histories.
I am currently seeking submissions of exhibitions for the Database and
resources for the Toolkit. I am particularly interested in academic
papers, essays and articles that address transmedia theory in relation
to the arts and culture.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. You may submit via
the online forms or email to [log in to unmask] - please be sure to

Thanks for your time!
