EXHIBITIONIST Journal Editor

  • What I do, where I work

  • “Exhibitionist” is a journal of reflective practice published twice yearly by NAME (National Association for Museum Exhibition), a professional network of the AAM (American Association of Museums). For the past several years each issue of “Exhibitionist” has featured critiques written by three different museum professionals about the same exhibition or museum. The designers, curators, educators, exhibit developers, and visitor researchers who contribute their comments provide a variety of perspectives on a single museum or exhibition. NAME and ExhibitFiles are collaborating to post past critiques in the Reviews section of Exhibit Files, and will continue to post new critiques as they are published in the journal.
