Editorial: The Appeal of Online Exhibitions

Thoughtful piece from Julie Taylor in South Africa publication Business Day: The appeal of online exhibitions. “Art and museum curators’ fears about online exhibitions being a ‘competitive replica’ of the real thing — and thus dissuading in-person visits — have proved to be unsubstantiated. THIS is a critical point for curators: that real and virtual exhibits very often have different audiences. Virtual exhibits were originally seen as complementary to real exhibits, but it may be better to understand them as independent entities.”
