Dear List,

What a great discussion!

I'm particularly interested in histories of exhibitions at the moment, and seem to have been writing a lot about it - most of it in press at the mo, including a chapter for Christiane's new book, and a book on collecting for Ashgate, but this one is actually out now:

Graham, Beryl (2013) “Exhibition Histories and New Media Behaviours.” Journal of Curatorial Studies, 2 (2 (summer)). http://dx.doi.org/10.1386/jcs.2.2.242_1. 242-262.

The basic argument is that Staniszewski says that exhibition histories are 'repressed', and that  “It is in the installation design of the first half of the twentieth century that the sources of such practices as viewer interactivity and site specificity, as well as multimedia, electronic and installation-based work, are to be found.” (Staniszewski 1998: xxiii) If the ‘sources’ of new media art practices, alongside installation and site-specific artwork, lie in exhibition installation, then the very nature of what is documented about exhibitions becomes particularly important to these practices, regarding issues of historicization.

If the exhibition IS the artwork, and needs to be interacted with to exist, as with some new media art, then exhibition histories become particularly important. The importance of contextual documentation including audience response also becomes crucial.

I think the Afterall books on exhibition histories have been very useful, but does anyone else have any good examples of excellent histories of exhibitions based on very full documentation?

Yours,

Beryl

Maybe a good starting point would be to look at Oliver Laric's Incomplete
Timeline of Online Exhibitions and Biennials:

Also some good/interesting subsequent conversation about the creation of
this work:

very best

Can anyone remember examples of early online art galleries that tried to
mimic the real world layouts of gallery/museum spaces. The pre-Second Life
skeuomorphic ways of displaying artŠ.
