Reading Room: Experiments in Collaborative Dialogue and Archival Practice in the Arts

March 23, 2018 - June 3, 2018

Reading Room is a material and immaterial archive of texts, books, and writings in response to the question: “How can art act as a mechanism for social action?”

Introduction

Reading Room is a material and immaterial archive of texts, books, and writings in response to the question: “How can art act as a mechanism for social action?” Positioning the Museum as an alternative site for community-building and public discourse, this exhibition creates a space inside of the galleries at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art for dialogue to materialize and for the public to inhabit. It will be a space for interactive reflection and discourse with the Museum’s ongoing exhibitions.

The exhibition is organized by Hailey Beaman ’18 and June Lei ’18.
