  • Titill er á ensku Matching Medium to Method : applying Virtual Museum Exhibitions to a Post-Pandemic World
  • Meistara
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    In this paper, I examine the growth in museum’s virtual exhibitions from the COVID-19 pandemic-onwards and argue for how such frameworks could continue to exist and add value to museum programming once the pandemic subsides. Over this period, virtual exhibitions took place through many channels including museums, galleries, artist-run spaces, and, other art and non-art-related projects. This paper singularly focuses on projects created by museums. I use case studies to survey the various models of digital projects and weigh each example with my own interpretation of its level of success. My criteria for a well-made virtual exhibition are based on the audience’s point of view and seek to enhance and expand the physical museum. The paper looks at how it compares to viewing a physical exhibition, how productively the exhibition uses digital technology, and how effectively information is presented in the exhibition. After dissecting various types of exhibitions, I discuss other ideological shifts spurred on by the pandemic that shape the ways in which contemporary museums are expected to function, and how this can be achieved through virtual exhibitions. My thesis concludes with proposed suggestions for future virtual exhibitions in museums deduced from my case studies, artist’s considerations, and my own experience curating a virtual exhibition.
