Case Studies from Animating Democracy
Museums and Civic Dialogue features three exhibition projects that demonstrate how museums can function as effective forums for civic dialogue: The Without Sanctuary Project (The Andy Warhol Museum); Gene(sis): Contemporary Art Explores Human Genomics (The Henry Art Gallery); and Mirroring Evil: Nazi Imagery/Recent Art (The Jewish Museum). Case studies examine approaches to curatorial practice, interpretation, and education prompted by civic intent; institutional challenges and changes in practice that occurred in doing this work; and the critical importance of partnerships.
