The special issue explores both theoretical and practical aspects on
contemporary curation. It covers key aspects of the history, theory and
practice of curating from the 20th century up to the present day. We
welcome papers that research and reflect upon a wide range of
curatorial contexts from exhibitions, off-site projects, events,

dissemination of defined curatorial contexts and strategies from
policy, strategic, experimental, empirical or theoretical perspectives.
We welcome papers from curators, historians, critics, artists and event
