ART PAPERS Live! lecture with Ute Meta Bauer

The modern exhibition space is a strange beast. Some venues, like Atlanta's Civic Center, are like giant cardboard dioramas; the building itself is an oversized rectangle filled with semi-permanent partitions that, depending on the current show, can be altered and retooled to suit the needs of the moment. Smart curators spend hundreds of hours planning the layout, spacial pacing, and atmospherics of an exhibition.

But I'm sure that's only a small sliver of what MIT professor Ute Meta Bauer will cover in her talk, Scripted Spaces: The Exhibition as an Architecture of Discourse for ART PAPERS Live!. The last ART PAPERS Live!, a lecture by Saskia Sassen of Columbia University, proved to be a heady broth of sociology, political science, and blended linguistic theory.

The next ART PAPERS Live! begins this Wed., May 13 at 7 p.m., at the High Museum's Hill Auditorium.
