How might exhibition planning be different if the goal is to spark visitors' imaginations rather than telling them what to know and think? Museum curators, like investigative reporters, leave no stone unturned. By the opening, every element of a given topic has been expertly dissected. The fruits of their labors are carefully parsed through the exhibition’s labels, panels, audio guides and video programs. But what if the point wasn’t to provide visitors with a tidy and complete intellectual package, but rather to prompt their curiosity? This session will present two case studies that provide alternative approaches to exhibition formation through co-curation and shared authority with the goal of fueling curiosity and inspiring wonder.
