I spent too much time yesterday and today trying to update my collection of new media art exhibition catalogs in preparation for my fall 2017 class Art and Electronic Media. In that class, the students choose a catalog, write a review of it, and then design their own exhibition. I’ll post the assignment once and list the recommended catalogs once it’s finished. But in the meantime, it seems like fewer venues are producing print exhibition catalogs.

Reader, I offer you this post from 2007 art journalist Marc Spiegler to start thinking about this debate: http://www.artworldsalon.com/blog/2007/03/exhibition-catalogs-time-for-a-serious-rethink/
