Contemporary Exhibition-Making and Management: Curating IMT Gallery as a Hybrid Space

Mark Jackson

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book provides a unique insight into contemporary curation and management in an innovative London-based gallery.

Using a critical in-depth case study exploration of IMT art gallery’s ‘successes’ and ‘failures’, it illustrates and evaluates contemporary issues and challenges in curatorial initiatives and exhibition-making strategies. IMT operates as a ‘hybrid space’, combining characteristics of both the commercial gallery sector with non-profit artist-led or garage spaces while retaining affiliations to academic teaching and research. This book explores its structure, behaviour, history, partnerships and exhibition programme through a variety of disciplinary lenses, bringing together cultural, creative, economic, and pedagogical perspectives, as well as the effect of recent sociocultural impacts of the global financial crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Research-based and thought-provoking, this study will be of great interest to researchers, advanced students and professionals in curatorial studies, museum and gallery management, and art markets.
