Experiencing Gallery Architecture

Experiencing Gallery Architecture is concerned with the way people engage with museum and gallery spaces. How do visitors experience and navigate space? How is sound art, live art, performance, participatory and digital art accommmodated? How are the interiors of galleries and their learning areas being designed? What kind of community consultation has been effective in relation to new or renewed architecture?

The contributors to this issue have responded to these questions and more, with reference to practices and challenges faced in different contexts.
