In this year’s Seminar on Innovative Curatorial Practice, Laura Kurgan of Columbia University and artist Fred Wilson will, from different perspectives, reflect on their work to reimagine how museum exhibits present information, often by juxtaposing the unexpected to create new insights. Their short presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion.

Laura Kurgan is associate professor of architecture at Columbia University, where she is also director of the Center for Spatial Research and of the visual studies curriculum.

Fred Wilson is a MacArthur Award–winning conceptual artist whose work explores the relationship between museums, individual works of art, and collections of other kinds.

Cosponsored by the Harvard Museums of Science and Culture and the Harvard Art Museums.

This seminar will take place at Harvard University, Northwest Building, B-103, 52 Oxford Street, Cambridge.
