How are exhibitions formed?

Museum curators manage and oversee museum collections. They make decisions about what to display and how to display it. 

  • How would you curate an exhibition?
  • What story would your exhibition tell?
  • How would you juxtapose artworks?

Create your own exhibition!

As you curate your exhibition, consider:

  • How might you arrange the artworks? 
  • Is there a theme or idea you want to explore? 
  • What stories can you tell about the artworks by placing certain ones next to each other?
