About This Book

Storytelling Exhibitions describes the role and practice of modern 'spatial storytellers' and looks at the potential of exhibitions to shape our understanding of the world. It explains how curators, designers, artists and scientists combine to tell powerful stories through exhibition design. Exhibition designer and educator Philip Hughes shows how contemporary tools and technologies - digital reconstruction, 3D scanning and digital archives – interweave with traditional forms of informing, displaying and promoting to create powerful narrative spaces. Whether telling stories of politics, trends, society, war, science or history, Storytelling Exhibitions provides inspiration and guidance on designing installations which change the way we think. Examples included from: Te Papa, Wellington, New Zealand
National Museum of African American History and Culture, Washington, USA
Weltmuseum Wien, Austria
Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, US
Lascaux: Centre International de l'Art Pariétal in Montignac, France
Stapferhaus, Lenzburg, Switizerland
Micropia, Amsterdam, Netherlands
