This seminar uses the resources of Yale’s art collection to map the intertwined histories of art and gallery architecture from the 16th century to today. We will consider how artists, curators and architects have and are continuing to explore how new technologies, multi-sensory experience, identity politics and environmentalism are reshaping museums, their audiences and the exhibitions they house. The past will allow us to imagine alternative futures for making museums interactive environments that promote multi-sensory experience among people of different races, genders and abilities.
