Curated by Bailey Placzek and Dean Sobel, this exhibition digs deep into the Museum’s vaults to present works from the Museum’s collection in two complementary but alternate ways as a means to understand how artworks and their meaning can change based on curatorial strategy. We welcome visitors to think about their own preferences and leave feedback.
Museums go to great lengths to organize their collections for their various audiences: by culture, maker, nationality, chronology, stylistic movement, theme, and even size. While thoughtful presentation of artworks in exhibitions is essential, every strategy has its own strengths and shortcomings, and every visitor has unique expectations when it comes to viewing art.
