Issue 03 (summer 2021)
With the remit and scope of museum practice changing rapidly in the
twenty-first century, this special issue interrogates the role of the
museum as a research hub. Recognizing that research has always underpinned
museum practice, we invite submissions that address the following concerns:
How is research integrated into museums’ future strategies? How do
collaborations among researchers, artists, and curators work? What are the
key applications of practice-based research? How does publishing contribute
to research culture? We also encourage submissions that discuss examples of
best practices.

Deadline for submissions: January 10, 2021. Read more
Issue 04 (fall 2021)
Virtually all museums and galleries nowadays organize film screenings and
showcase video and digital artworks, gradually transforming the museum into
a fluid, mobile environment. Online platforms also collect and display
artworks, expanding the borders of the museum into the digital realm. Some
filmmakers specialize in making movies for art lovers, creating ludic and
experiential worlds of art. The range of concerns to be explored in this
special issue is broad and includes acquisition, curating, conservation,
research, access, and publication.

Deadline for submissions: February 28, 2021. Read more
