Reconstructing Exhibitions

Reconstructing Exhibitions is a research project that explores the recent curatorial practice of revisiting and restaging seminal exhibitions from the past.

The project aims to advance the emerging scholarship on exhibition reconstructions by bringing together art historians, curators, artists and other museum professionals to share their diverse viewpoints from the fields of art history, curating, museology, art practice, and cultural heritage.

Reconstructing Exhibitions is led by Dr Michaela Giebelhausen and Dr Natasha Adamou (UAL: Central Saint Martins). Email Natasha adamou.natasha@gmail.com or Michaela mgiebelhausen@gmail.com for more information.
