Putting the U back in Curator

May 1, 2007–January 20, 2008

This exhibition centers around notions of collaboration, participation, authorship, community, and curatorial practice. On May 1–3, Museum staff invited random willing visitors to actively participate in the curatorial process by personally selecting artwork from the Museum’s collection to be included in the exhibition. Once selected, the artwork was pulled from the vault and installed in the selection order, injecting the gallery’s atmosphere with a sense of multiplicity and chance—the result of a truly collective process.
