Weaving narratives in Museums and Galleries

by Suzy Walker-Toye

I watched this on thursday and have been meaning to find it online a post a link to it ( I was actually thinking quite a lot about it throughout the study visit too). Its a really interesting talk on the role museums and galleries play…

Thomas P. Campbell: Weaving narratives in museum galleries

As the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Thomas P. Campbell thinks deeply about curating—not just selecting art objects, but placing them in a setting where the public can learn their stories. With glorious images, he shows how his curation philosophy works for displaying medieval tapestries—and for the over-the-top fashion/art of Alexander McQueen. (From The Design Studio session at TED2012, guest-curated by Chee Pearlman and David Rockwell.)

Yet another really interesting TED talks. You should subscribe to the post casts if you dont already.
