A Symposium of Curatorial Interventions

Curated by Lissette Olivares

A Symposium of Curatorial Interventions seeks to open a dialogical space where exhibition practitioners can share interdisciplinary approaches and tactics that encourage vitality within the field of museum and curatorial studies. The Oxford English Dictionary defines intervention as “‘stepping in,’ or interfering in any affair, so as to affect its course or issue. Curatorial intervention is not yet an extensively theorized or historicized topic. We might say it engages exhibitionary histories with hopes of transforming the ways displays are produced and the ways audiences relate to them.
