Thanks for the rousing class discussion over the notions of “exhibition” and “mediation.” Here is a link to a website called Sedef’s Corner that shows images of exhibitions from the 18th and 19th Centuries. If you have visited art museums or galleries, you will notice a marked difference between how works are shown today and how they were displayed in previous periods.
A special thank you Kate who captured the words that you all provided in our talk about personal goals for exhibitions. You said that exhibitions should “incite” the following responses:
- Engagement with the Unknown
- Interest in reproducing the experience
- Call to Action
- Desire to Pull Together a/the Community
- Engagement with the Sublime
You should be thinking of how these ideas can be applied to Game Changers.
