Inviting perspectives from visual studies, art history, museum studies, critical theory, cultural studies and other academic fields, the journal encompasses a diversity of disciplinary approaches on curating and exhibitions broadly defined. By catalyzing debate and serving as a venue for the emerging discipline of curatorial studies, this journal encourages the development of the theory, practice and history of curating, as well as the analysis of exhibitions and display culture in general.The first issue features articles on the use of chance as a curatorial strategy, discursive interventions into art institutions, fashion exhibitions in museums, Haiti’s Ghetto Biennale, early exhibition experiments at London’s ICA, and reviews from around the world. Journal of Curatorial Studies publishes three times a year and contains original research articles on the subject of curating and exhibitions, as well as case studies, interviews and reviews of exhibitions, conferences and books.
