Vince Dziekan is a Senior Academic and Practitioner-Researcher at Monash Art Design and Architecture (MADA), Monash University, Australia. Vince’s work engages with the transformation of contemporary curatorial practices at the intersection of emerging design practices, creative technology and museum culture. He has published widely in traditional and scholarly, as well as non-traditional, modes through his independent curatorial practice. The scope of these interdisciplinary investigations are reflected in his book, Virtuality and the Art of Exhibition: Curatorial Design for the Multimedial Museum (Intellect/University of Chicago Press, 2012), and, more recently, in The Routledge Handbook of Museums, Media and Communication (co-edited with Kirsten Drotner, Ross Parry and Kim Schroder, Routledge, 2018). Together with Ross Parry, he is the Series Editor of a newly-launched book series with Routledge, entitled, Critical Perspectives on Museums and Digital Technology. His current research includes editorship of The Encyclopaedia of New Media Art (Bloomsbury); and Chief Investigator for the Inclusive Museum Experiences for Blind and Low Vision Visitors research project (funded by the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, in partnership with Monash University and the Bendigo Art Gallery). His previous research associations include associate editorship of Curator: The Museum Journal (Wiley); International Advisor on One by One – a major Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded research project that delivered a digital literacy framework for the United Kingdom museum sector; and Founding Curator of MWX – the exhibition initiative of Museums and the Web (United States).
