This article focuses on the intersection of exhibitionary and architectural space in early postwar Rome. It examines the development of spatialized exhibition practices that choreograph as well as destabilize viewers’ movements across perceptual and physical boundaries between artworks, enclosing buildings, and the connective external city. The central question we address is how Rome’s built environment served as an integral background for increasingly liminal exhibitionary engagement from the mid-1950s to early 1960s at two key small galleries, L’Obelisco and La Salita, as well as at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna.

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.
