Detroit Institute of Arts, 2012-2013

Design of two-phase participatory exhibition, gallery layout, graphic design, labels, and fabrication.

Eight paintings that had been tucked away for years in DIA storage were chosen for conservation and further study. Research unearthed fascinating new information, but only a small sliver of it could appear on a label when each painting went on exhibit. In this vanguard exhibition, visitors were invited to decide what stories to tell about the paintings in the exhibition, by voting with colorful mini-pompoms. After the votes were tallied, Hidden Treasures reopened as a regular exhibition with labels featuring the winning stories.
