Theatres at an Exhibition—The Art of Performance in Two Dimensions
This PAR will be devoted to the art of theatre exhibitions. The volume will be an inspirational “how to” for librarians, archivists, and theatre historians planning their own exhibitions by showcasing outstanding examples from the past and getting advice from the experts on how to design, create, fund, and promote these to the public.
We will address the critical questions of how to make theatre performative in two dimensions; how to appeal to a range of audience(s) from practitioners to the general public; how to create a great exhibition with limited funds and no special training. Barbara Cohen-Stratyner, Director of Exhibitions at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, will write the lead article on her pioneering work in New York but we need many more essays to round out the volume. We invite contributors on these and other topics of your choice:
