Vince Dziekan is a Senior Academic and Practitioner-Researcher at Monash Art Design & Architecture (MADA), Monash University, Australia. Together with Ross Parry, he is Series Editor of a newly launched book series with Routledge titled, Critical Perspectives on Museums and Digital Technology. Vince’s work engages with the transformation of contemporary curatorial practices at the intersection of emerging design practices, creative technology and museum culture. The scope of this interdisciplinary investigation has been outlined previously in his book, Virtuality and the Art of Exhibition: Curatorial Design for the Multimedial Museum (Intellect/University of Chicago Press, 2012), and more recently The Routledge Handbook of Museums, Media and Communication (co-edited with Kirsten Drotner, Ross Parry and Kim Schroder, Routledge, 2018). He has published widely in traditional, scholarly as well as non-traditional modes through his independent curatorial practice. He is associate editor of Curator: The Museum Journal (Wiley), general editor of The Encyclopaedia of New Media Art (Bloomsbury), founding curator of MWX, the exhibition initiative of Museums and the Web (United States), and was an international advisor on ‘One by One: Building the digital literacies of UK museums’ – a major, national Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded research project, to develop a digital literacy framework for the United Kingdom museum sector.
