MUSM:4000 ( 024:121 )



General Catalog:

How placement of artworks in a setting and their relationship to each other affect the way viewers understand the works; influence of curator's choice of placement, sequence, height, wall color, and so forth; varied settings, with focus on display issues in art museums; includes gallery and museum experiences.

Description:

This course will provide students with the opportunity to consider how the placement of artworks in a museum and in relationship to each other affects the way in which the viewer understands the work of art.  While not immediately apparent, works on display in museums and exhibition spaces are mediated by the curator’s choice of placement, sequence, height, wall color, and so forth.  Several different settings will be considered, although the focus will be on display issues in art museums.  Through readings, discussions, and in-gallery and museum experiences, students will critically consider the impact of placement on the work’s reception and power.
