Professors Selma Holo and Richard Meyer guide undergraduates as they re-curate the current exhibition.
From March 27 to April 17, 2010

Armed with original research and innovative ideas, five undergraduates will re-curate the Fisher Museum’s current show, Four Rooms and a View: USC’s Collection Highlights. Their resulting exhibition, re:View, is a thought-provoking reinterpretation of selected works in USC’s permanent collection which presents new perspectives on traditional curatorial practice. re:View will be exhibited from March 27 through April 17, 2010, at the USC Fisher Museum

Tackling such issues as public access to art and museum authority, re:View is a precedent-setting model for how to bridge the gap among academic researchers, museum professionals and artists. For re:View, the student-curators — with majors ranging from biology and art history to sociology to communication — have introduced additional works of art and commentary into the galleries, including multimedia and “unseen” pieces that may have never before been displayed in a museum.

This curatorial intervention is held in conjunction with the exhibtition “Four Rooms and a View: USC’s Collection Highlights” still on view.
