'If the focus of modernist debates was the individual work of art, it is the exhibition that is the prime cultural carrier of contemporaneity. Set against the rise of the curator as an influential force in the contemporary art world, this volume underlines the crucial role of artists in questioning and shaping the phenomenon of the exhibition. The texts encompass exhibition design and form; exhibitions that are object-based, live or discursive; projects that no longer rely on a physical space to be visited in person; artists' responses to being curated; and their reflections on the potential of acting curatorially.'
