Dr Vince Dziekan is Director of Graduate Research in Design at Monash Art Design and Architecture in Melbourne, Australia. His research focuses on the impact of digital technologies on curatorial design and the implications of virtuality on exhibition-based practices. This interdisciplinary investigation is articulated in his book, Virtuality and the Art of Exhibition: Curatorial Design for the Multimedial Museum (published by Intellect Books, UK). He has published widely in both traditional (e.g. peer-reviewed journals and conferences) and non-traditional modes (e.g. creative works). He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions and through his independent curatorial practice, nationally and internationally. He exhibited his demonstration exhibition, The Ammonite Order, Or Objectiles for an (Un) Natural History at Ormeau Baths Gallery in Belfast, Northern Ireland (as part of the ISEA2009) and more recently, he co-curated The World Is Everything That Is The Case  (with Sean Cubitt and Paul Thomas) for ISEA2011, Istanbul, Turkey, which also formed part of the satellite program of the 12th Istanbul Biennial. Through his curatorial research he has been involved in establishing numerous curatorial initiatives and platforms, including the Leonardo Electronic Almanac’s Media Exhibition Platform (with Lanfranco Aceti and Christiane Paul), the exUrbanScreens project  (since 2012) and, most recently, MWX, the exhibition initiative for Museums and the Web. He has been engaged in numerous research projects, program committees and editorial boards and held research affiliations with the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology (FACT) in Liverpool, UK.
