Rising attendance at museums and megashows plus increased press coverage in the age of the international biennial and blockbuster have translated into a growing interest in how exhibitions are made. The new art histories and the curatorial practice frequently remains unstated: What makes an exhibition great?. In this book, 14 essays by active curators and historians address the issue head on. Their prespectives on realizing high ideals in the face of budget constraints and various, sometimes conflicting, institutional and public imperatives provide pragmatic examples of thinking by doing and ways to address the public through that central nexus of art and audience: the exhibition.
Focused on curating contemporary art, mainly American and European, "What makes a great exhibition?" includes essays by the prolific curator Robert Storr on the plurality encompassed by the words "exhibiton" and "exhibition-maker"; Studio Museum in Harlem director and chief curator Thelma Golden on issues informing culturally specific exhibitions; Dia Foundation curator Lynne Cooke on firmly grounding rarified aims; Iwona Blazwick on a century of trailblazing at London´s Whitechapel Art gallery, where she is director; and Philadelphia Museum of Art curator Carlos Basualdo on the need to establish a meaningful critical context for international biennials. Other writers address such issues as the question of the didactic label; the nature of the "group" in group exhibitions; exhibiting design, video, and craft; as well as the way architecture can influence the nature of the exhibitions it houses. "What makes a great exhibition?" proposes carefully considered answers to numerous questions of practice even as it raises more questions about exhibition-making today.
This volume aims to simulate thought about how overaching issues meet on-the-ground practicalities. "What makes a great exhibiton?" is vital reading for arts professionals, art and curatorial studies students, art historians, practicing artists, and anyone curious about exhibition-making today.
