Exhibiting Comics: Applying Creative and Technological Solutions to the Problems of Displaying Comic Art in Museums, Galleries and Visitor Attractions
Comics are a site of anxiety about different kinds of value. This has, at times, led to the destruction of value through misunderstanding of the medium. Different ideas about commercial, aesthetic, cultural and social value all cluster around comics. The endemic problems of display and curation reflect these complexities. This research will analyse the creative and technological solutions of displaying comic art in visitor attractions, allowing these different strands of value and appreciation to articulate themselves and make their inter-relation more visible. This kind of analysis will allow Xcentuate to work with the academic partners to create an entrepreneurial strategy addressing these issues.
