ARTH 027. Colloquium: Exhibiting Women


The course considers the history and practice of exhibiting art. Using Philadelphia’s rich array of museums, galleries, and public art collections, we will examine past and present exhibition practices to ask: what educational, aesthetic, and political purposes do exhibitions serve? How have they done so and why? How do exhibition curators and designers use space, design, and technology to contribute to–and control–the experience of the visitor?  As part of this course students will conceive, design, and execute a virtual exhibition.
