The art of curation

Graduate students help tell the story of a Smart Museum exhibit as a part of their coursework.

Each student in the Materialities of Modern Art course researched, wrote, and revised object labels for two pieces in the Smart Museum's After the Readymade exhibit, curated by PhD student Emily Capper in consultation with art history professor Christine Mehring and assistant curator Jessica Moss.

The exhibit's works are on display until May 1 and include pieces of art that make use of materials from everyday life, like coloring books and sweaters.
