Spring 2014, "Intentionally Designed Spaces"
In this issue we are exploring the concept of exhibitions as "intentionally designed spaces." As such, we are using the term "exhibitions" as widely as possible–representing all content areas and all types of museums, as well as institutions that display living collections. The emphasis is "intention."

This is what we mean by "New Media." It is a constantly moving target and in this issue of the Journal Exhibitionist, we aim for it, with a wide-ranging look at what's happening now with exhibitions and technology.
