The on-line journal Palinsesti invites proposals for contributions (max 40,000 characters) dedicated to the redefinition of Italian art between the 1960s and today in reaction to the changing conditions of museum exhibitions such as:
-The transition from chronological conditions to thematic ones in the permanent collections of Italian and foreign museums, and the methods of curating thematically organized exhibitions.
-The change of narrative, didactic, and expository functions of the museum.
-The new types of relations among works and architectural spaces.
In addition to the examples mentioned, Palinsesti encourages research dedicated to the theme of historical curating, either thematic or chronological, in relation to the larger panorama of museum institutions, public and private exhibition spaces, and alternative spaces.
Deadline: December 31 2012.
