Claire Wintle - Exhibition making in crisis: professional identity and radical design after the Second World War
Claire, thank you for your brilliant presentation! I found the examples design influence absolutely fascinating and would love to discuss this further (maybe in my next supervisory meeting).
Hi Claire, it's quite amazing to see how current museums seem to face the same problems than museums you studied (!). Professionalization is expected as ever and each exhibition create debates about the impact of design on contents. Here in France, private designers are regularly requested for imagining the most appropriate display (even in public institutions) and exhibition tour tends to be observed as the masterpieces themselves are. However, I have in mind that the aesthetic issue remains the major motive of such stagings, even if visitors (and curators) could find some additional significant accounts.
