Exhibiting Cultures: The Poetics and Politics of Museum Display Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Debating the practices of museums, galleries, and festivals, Exhibiting Cultures probes the often politically charged relationships among aesthetics, contexts, and implicit assumptions that govern how art and artifacts are displayed and understood. The contributors—museum directors, curators, and scholars in art history, folklore, history, and anthropology—represent a variety of stances on the role of museums and their function as intermediaries between the makers of art or artifacts and the eventual viewers.

Synopsis:

Bringing together museum directors, curators, and scholars in art history, folklore, history, and anthropology, Exhibiting Cultures engages in debate over meaning and representation that have accompanied and driven museums' efforts regarding multiculturalism. The contributors represent a variety of stances on the role of museums and their function as intermediaries between the makers of art or artifacts and the eventual viewers.

Synopsis:

Offers information from the conference entitled "Poetics and politics of representation" on setting up museum displays.
