Labeling: A History Lesson

When: Thu., July 21, 4 p.m. 2016

Led by Katarzyna Pieprzak, Chair and Professor of Francophone Literature, French Language, and Comparative Literature. Museums constantly make decisions about objects and their reception. Which work gets shared? What is displayed alongside it? How are objects written about and analyzed? These decisions impact the way that works of art, knowledge, and even people have been organized over time. Consider the implications of these decisions by creatively re-crafting WCMA and its taxonomies.
