Resonant exhibitions: when interpretation becomes artefact

Hi Colin/Eric,

 

Really interesting presentation, some great ideas. I am particularly interested in the example you gave of the Assemble exhibition (2015) and how the leftover fragments remained in the space in some ways. I am looking at a similar idea in my presentation (in the reconstructing exhibitions panel) on how participatory exhibitions might be archived and collected to preserve the experience. It would be great to hear more of your thoughts on this! My email is Led25@le.ac.uk if you would like to talk more.

Thanks, Laura

Thanks for your comment Laura. This was something that really struck me when I started working at RIBA - the fact this very successful exhibition had been 'adopted' by the staff in an unexpected way. I'm not sure it helped preserve the experience as such, but it showed that the participatory element of the exhibition extended beyond the spatial and temporal confines of the display. 

Happy to discuss further as your research is very close to my own interests. I think we also 'met' at ACHS?

 

Colin
