#exstrange (2017) was an online curatorial project in which artworks were displayed and sold, auction-style, on eBay. For three months in 2017, the project presented one artwork-as-auction per day to interrogate the functioning of this e-commerce platform and the role of digital culture in everyday life. By focusing on the interactivity and global networking of the Internet, #exstrange sought to reconsider the relationship between exhibitions, artworks and audiences.

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.
