EXHIBITING CRAFT AND DESIGN: TRANSGRESSING THE WHITE CUBE PARADIGM, 1930-PRESENT. Ed. by Alla Myzelev. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. An Ashgate Book. 212 pp. with 43 ills. 26 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781472476951 In English.
Publisher's description: Exhibiting Craft and Design: Transgressing the White Cube Paradigm investigates the firmly-established manner in which craft and design have typically been presented by museums and galleries, what strategies curators have employed throughout the twentieth century, and especially in more recent years how exhibiting design and craft objects challenges the notion of the modernist White Cube display paradigm. 'White Cube' gallery display is here understood as a paradigm: namely, as a model of museum practice that is embedded in and indebted to modernist tradition. The history of modernist museology throughout the last century is characterized by strategies of displaying art or artefacts which favor light, neutral wall colour, generous distances between works of art, and atmospheric light directed at the artworks. Recognizing that the history of twentieth-century museology - and specifically the display of material - is beholden to this paradigm, the contributors to the volume interrogate how exactly this presumably neutral method of display has manipulated and augmented relationships between makers, audiences and museum professionals.
