Digital technologies are playing an increasingly instrumental role in guiding the curatorial and institutional strategies of contemporary art museums today. Designed around contextual studies of virtuality and the art of exhibition, this interdisciplinary volume applies practice-based research to a broad range of topics, including digital mediation, spatial practice, the multimedial museum, and curatorial design. Rounding out the volume are case studies with accompanying illustrations.

Reviews
'The book is well written and thought out and so is highly recommended ... I am using it this semester in the curating course I am teaching to advanced undergraduates' – Dene Grigar for Leonardo

'In Virtuality and the Art of Exhibition: Curatorial Design for the Multimedia Museum, Vince Dziekan attempts to foster an understanding of how the curatorial design process has evolved to incorporate digital technology. Dziekan surveys existing field literature and provides detailed descriptions of specific exhibitions that have implemented multimedial design. […] Dziekan draws solid ties between relevant field literature and thoughtfully connects themes throughout the book. Dziekan does not identify a specifically intended audience, but the book would be relevant for curators or other individuals involved in, or looking to learn about, the production of an exhibition involving digital technology. Academic libraries with museum studies programs or museum libraries that are new to incorporating multimedial pieces in their exhibits could benefit from this text. ' – Amy De Simone, Reference Librarian, Rakow Research Library, Corning Museum of Glass
