The Exhibitonist #2

The Exhibitionist, a new journal made by curators, for curators, focusing solely on the practice of exhibition making.
The objective is to create a wider platform for the discussion of curatorial concerns – encourage a diversification of curatorial models, and actively contribute to the formation of a theory of curating.

The Exhibitionist will be published twice a year and will follow a strict editorial structure. In each issue, the Curators’ Favorites section will present three texts in which three curators write a personal essay about an exhibition, contemporary or historic, that has particularly impacted their thinking, followed by Back in the Day – an in-depth look at a historically important exhibition. In Assessments, the core of the journal, four curators will review a significant contemporary exhibition, each from his or her individual point of view. Typologies debates specific exhibition formats. Attitude features a text by a member of the editorial board reflecting on the current state of exhibition making. In Rear Mirror, two curators reflect upon exhibitions they have recently curated. And, finally, Endnote, a brief remark on a notable aspect of curatorial practice. Every fourth issue will include a conversation between some of the contributors about past issues; in this way the journal offers a forum for self-reflexivity.
