Preview

This chapter reconsiders connoisseurship and its possible relationship to screendance. The chapter focuses on spectatorship, the audience and the role of connoisseurship, the phenomena in which literacy grows through the collaborative efforts of curators, makers and finally audience members and patrons. The author suggests that connoisseurship might be described as a desired outcome of any art form, including screendance.
