A Note on Exhibition Catalogs

Exhibition catalogs contain valuable insight into the curator's and museum director's thoughts. These statements and essays can often address:

  • Why these works were brought together under one roof at this point in time.
  • The social and political issues raised by the exhibition.
  • Local and global partners who helped make the exhibition possible.
  • Insight into the curator's relationship with the artist/s. 

Exhibition Catalogs: May Not Be Published Online

Most of the exhibition catalogs published may not be available online, largely due to the cost of image rights. These heavily include more recent catalogs (the last 25 years or so) that contain high quality images.
