Inviting contributions
Contributions are invited for Engage 28, which will focus on the reconfiguration of museums and galleries. In light of current technological, political and funding changes, is this a historic moment for museums and galleries? How are they being reconfigured, conceptually, architecturally and digitally? As engage 28 will be the first issue to be published exclusively online, we also welcome suggestions for exciting ways to make the most of the digital format.
