Exhibitions as History

Spring 2020

Taught By: Jeannine Tang

Section: A

CRN: 5603

Credits: 4

This course explores the history, theory, and practice of art exhibitions as physical spaces of display, critical public spheres, historical processes of formal experimentation, power and ideology. Exhibitions under examination will include museological displays of art and cultural collections, temporary group and solo presentations, historical and thematic exhibitions, artist-organized shows, curatorial projects privileging commissions and duration, and international exhibitions such as expos and biennials. We will consider forms of exhibition-making with regards to their manifold institution settings and contexts—across museums, salons, private galleries and public spaces. We will also examine exhibitions as counterparts to transformations in modern and contemporary art practice, changing forms of work and labor, state power and private investment, cultural internationalism and economic globalization. Coursework includes research papers on exhibition history, visits to exhibitions in New York City, meetings with curators, artists, historians, archivists and/or designers. We will study work and writings by Susan Cahan, Carol Duncan, Mary Ann Stanieszewski, Andrea Fraser, Jennifer Gonzalez, Maria Lind, Lucy Lippard, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, David Teh, Patrick Flores, Kynaston McShine, Gabi Ngcobo, Helen Molesworth, cheyanne turions, Seth Siegelaub, Fred Wilson, among others.
