For the Spring 2010 issue of "Exhibitionist," the exhibitions journal that I edit (www.name-aam.org), we want to look at issues that come up over and over again in developing and designing exhibitions - like should we do an intro film? Are dioramas out forever or in again? Strong lighting for accessibility or low lighting to preserve objects? Artifacts or props, etc?
I'm soliciting examples of any exhibition frictions you would like to contribute, and am especially interested in those that have been addressed creatively. Any ideas? I'd love to hear them. I would like to hear from you by end of June 2009.
Thanks, Gretchen Jennings
