"All museum activities converge in the public forum of the exhibition--regardless of whether the exhibit is held in the physical museum or on the Web. Since the first edition of this book was released in 2001, there has been a worldwide explosion of new galleries and exhibition halls, as well as new ideas about how exhibitions should look and communicate. The definition of what an exhibition is has changed, as exhibitions can now be virtual, and nontraditional migratory and pop-up spaces play host to temporary displays. Social media have likewise created amazing opportunities for participatory engagement and shifted authority away from experts to the public, and as time-constrained audiences demand more dynamic, interactive, and mobile applications, museum leadership, managers, staff, and designers are rising to these challenges in innovative ways"--Back cover.
