Exhibitions for Social Justice

CEREV Ph.D. student and curator Vicky Chainey Gagnon is collaborating with museum practitioners Elena Gonzales and Gretchen Rudham to develop a set of tools that will aid critical curatorial and educational practice in exhibitions. Through hands-on experiments with participants – particularly individuals and groups that work for social change – they will develop strategies for curatorial writing, effective display of objects, self-aware engagement of visitors with objects and each other, and the creation of opportunities for critical embodied learning towards questioning privileges taken for granted.
