Exhibition Histories is a book series, published by Afterall, which focuses on contemporary art exhibitions from the past fifty years that have had a significant impact upon the way that art is seen and made. Each title in the series addresses a different theme in the history of curatorial practice, with specific reference to a particular exhibition or cluster of exhibitions, beginning with two landmark exhibitions held in 1969: Op Losse Schroeven1 and When Attitudes Become Form.2

We developed a design for the books which creates consistency from edition to edition, using colour to clearly differentiate between the books in the series. For each title, we are closely involved in extending and exploring the content, working with archival materials and photographs to piece together floorplans and draw up maps of the exhibitions in question.
