Archived Course: Media Exhibition Design

Project-based graduate seminar elective

Throughout the semester, we’ll learn by doing: we’ll learn about theories and practices of display and curation by creating the Project Media Space|Public Space exhibition, which will be held in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s 3000-square-foot gallery at 15 Nassau St., in Lower Manhattan, for two week in mid-May 2006. We’ll pay particular attention to the unique challenges of displaying media pieces, and by addressing these practical concerns, we’ll also explore such theoretical issues as the “situatedness” of media experience and the relationships between media and “space.” All students enrolled in the course must be prepared to make themselves available for installation during the last week of April and the first week of May.
