Archival Remembering Exhibitions
Abstract:This article examines the variant of remembering exhibitions that adopts a documentary approach rather than attempting to replicate, riff on, or reprise the remembered exhibition. Case studies focus on examples that remember more than one exhibition. Discussions of Stationen der Moderne, Telling Histories, Parallel Chronologies, L'Attico and Recollections present the interplay between their celebratory functions and political import in relation to institutional, geographic and temporal considerations. In addition, the archival remembering exhibition is positioned in relation to the archive as it appears in recent contemporary art exhibition practices.

More about this publication?
- The Journal of Curatorial Studies is an international, peer-reviewed publication that explores the cultural functioning of curating and its relation to exhibitions, institutions, audiences, aesthetics and display culture. The journal takes a wide perspective in the inquiry into what constitutes "the curatorial." Curating has evolved considerably from the connoisseurship model of arranging objects to now encompass performative, virtual and interventionist strategies. While curating as a spatialized discourse of art objects remains important, the expanded cultural practice of curating not only produces exhibitions for audiences to view, but also plays a catalytic role in redefining aesthetic experience, framing cultural conditions in institutions and communities, and inquiring into constructions of knowledge and ideology.
