During the next Sunday Stroll (1 November), detour guide Pia Canales will show us around the exhibition Art on Display, which focuses on the way art is presented. Usually, we concentrate on the artworks on show, paying little attention to how they are shown. Together, we will shift the balance.
Art on Display 1949-69 is an exhibition that focuses not on the artworks themselves, but on the way they are presented. How do we show art? And how do we look at it, as museum visitors? Art on Display brings together some of the most progressive post-war exhibition designs by architects, giving us a unique opportunity to experience and compare these various approaches in person.
Pia is a professional observer of everyday things. Thanks to her hyper-curious attitude, she knows a little too much, and thanks to her background in art, she knows a little bit more. Her favourite things are peanut butter, inter-dimensional aliens, and amateurs.
‘’I walk in circles, I only walk in circles, I walk in circles for hours, I keep walking in circles, every circle is different.’’
