Product Details


“By far the most thought-provoking edited volume on museum exhibitions yet to appear.”—American Anthropologist

Exhibiting Cultures presents a compelling range of theoretical debates that address different kinds of museums, museum practices, museum practitioners, and museum audiences.”—Afterimage

“The book offers a compendium of just what ails the contemporary museum . . . [a topic] that has an important place in the battle to politicize culture.”—Transition

“Provocative. . . . Bolstered by example after example, the essays make it clear that these days, museum curators have entered, as one says, ‘hotly contested terrain,’ where pleasing everyone is practically impossible.”—Art & Auction
