Swiss Institute Launches 'The Exhibitionist'

Thursday, May 25, beginning at 7PM, ARTBOOK and the SWISS INSTITUTE invite you to the launch of The Exhibitionist: Journal on Exhibition Making, The First Six Years. Founding editor Jens Hoffmann will introduce the event; Amara Antilla will discuss the history of the history of exhibitions; and a roundtable conversation on exhibiting exhibitions will include Ruba Katrib, Mia Locks and Lauren Cornell, moderated by Piper Marshall.

Swiss Institute Launches 'The Exhibitionist'

The Exhibitionist: Journal on Exhibition Making is an anthology of the first 12 issues of the journal about contemporary curating that bears the same name. Established in 2009 as a forum for critical reflection on exhibition-making and curatorial practice, The Exhibitionist has always defined itself as “by curators, for curators.” Collected together in a monumental omnibus edition (clocking in at 975 pages), the complete run of the journal is accompanied by a new introduction by founding editor Jens Hoffmann, and a critical approach to a theory of the exhibition by senior editor Julian Myers-Szupinska. With the publication of this volume, The Exhibitionist closes a chapter of its existence as a print magazine and shifts its activities to the-exhibitionist.com.

The Exhibitionist: Journal on Exhibition Making // The First Six Years is published by The Exhibitionist in collaboration with Distributed Art Publishers.

Please RSVP to: rsvp@swissinstitute.net. Please note: capacity for this event is limited, and only confirmed guests will be admitted.
