ARTH 6818

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017.

Public display of art objects and artifacts involves more than just artistic presentations. How is the title selected? What (whose) works are included? How are they displayed? How are they framed in the exhibition space as well as in an exhibition catalogue? These complex issues are integral to exhibition discourse. Students will review past exhibitions and design a new exhibition based on the collection at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum. The final product will be on view to the public and will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue co-authored by all participants in the seminar. Students will learn how to engage in academic and scholarly inquiry of issues related to exhibition design, and will experience hands-on aspects of museum work related to organizing an exhibition.

When Offered Spring.
