Interpreting the Art Museum: Contents List

Apr 15

We received some fifty exceptionally high-quality submissions in response to our recent Call for Papers - making it more difficult than usual to choose which to include! The outstanding chapters and case studies we've selected for inclusion will provide invaluable insights into a wide range of effective and innovative art interpretation programmes and we're grateful to the authors for their willingness to share their experience.
