NCKU: IJCCI's Special Issue on Contemporary Curation Now Available Online

TAINAN, Taiwan --(Business Wire)--

The International Journal of Cultural and Creative Industries (IJCCI) organized by the Institute of Creative Industries Design (ICID) at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), southern Taiwan, has just released its third issue of the first volume in July 2014, the university revealed.

The publication was designed as a special issue of "Contemporary Curation: Theory and Practice" which addresses both theoretical and practical aspects of contemporary curation and covers key aspects of the history, theory and practice of curating from the 20th century onward.

NCKU ICID Professor Ming Turner, IJCCI's Guest Editor, said, "The selected essays research and reflect upon a wide range of curatorial contexts from exhibitions, off-site projects, events and the theoretical perspectives of contemporary curation."

"The focus of this special issue is the application and dissemination of defined curatorial contexts and strategies from policy, strategic, experimental, empirical or theoretical perspectives," Turner added.

The special issue contains eight aricles written by curators, artists, art historians, writers, and academics from seven countries.

The Academic Research section features the growing role of curator from a caretaker of artwork to a project manager who manage the overall planning and operations of curational projects (by Gonca Aslan and Cagri Bulut, Turkey) and the practice of transforming aircraft carriers from military into educational and exhibition purposes (by Benjamin Hrushka, United States).

The Industry Insight section features the exchanging roles of artists and curators (by Elisabeth S. B. Pilhofer, Germany), how a Dutch TV personality/author Boudewijn Büch promoted arts from elite consumption to public consumption (by Alex van Egmond, the Netherlands), the challenges faced by curators while dealing with institutional and Aboriginal stakeholders in Australia (by Gretchen M. Stolte, Australia), and two disparate ways of displaying the history of war by the same curator yet with different effects to the public (by Malgorzata Lisiewicz, Poland).

The Glocal Perspective section features a comparative study of two cases that show the process and reception of two government-commissioned public arts by Indigenous women artists in Australia (by Jay Younger, Australia) and the Guest Editor's own curational project in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei that involves the art works of local and international artists under the theme of Post-humanist Desire.
