About

Exhibition Histories addresses what happens when art becomes public. Its programme of research, publications, symposia and talks is committed to presenting a plurality of voices and critical perspectives, while bringing archival and other primary materials to bear on current and future practice.

Publications to date have focused on curatorial experimentation; exhibitionary activity led by artists; and contested articulations of the ‘global’ and the ‘located’. The book series launched in October 2010 and now forms part of the wider field of research activity, Art Becoming Public.

As researchers, publishers and teachers at Afterall, we will continue to explore situations that productively challenge and refine understandings of ‘art’, ‘exhibition’ and ‘history’, mindful of what those terms might mean for the present.

The series is published by Afterall in association with Asia Art Archive; the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College; documenta Institut; and the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, University of Gothenburg.

Research undertaken for the series also informs the MRes Art: Exhibition Studies course we teach at Central Saint Martins (CSM).
