Project #23615 - locating exhibits

A note on exhibits: an exhibit is something you can interpret and has potential for rich analysis, in this case a text, work of art, television show, movie, song, tradition or phenomenon (but no print ads). An exhibit is different than an example. While an example affirms an argument, an exhibit is dynamic; it may raise problems with our status quo understanding. Through careful analysis, our developing ideas about the exhibit may change or challenge our initial assumptions. 

Find an exhibit that addresses the concepts of visual representation or identify. Make a claim about how visual representation or identity is being framed, depicted, altered or otherwise affected and what it means in the context of your exhibit.

1. Locate three potential exhibits you’d like to write about. Note that your exhibit may be a part of something larger, e.g., a paragraph in a text, a scene in a movie, one photo from a collection.) Remember that you can focus (and probably should) on the smallest detail of an exhibit if you suspect doing so will be productive. For each exhibit:

  • Briefly explain the problem that your exhibit raises for you. How is visual representation or identity is invoked or deployed in your texts? How is this invocation or deployment problematic?
  • What are three genuine questions you have about your exhibit?
  • How might the other texts interact with your exhibit?
  • Why does this exhibit sincerely intrigue you? Why does it demand interpretation?

  • Close-read this video the same way you would a text. Make note of statements or moments that strike you, and cite minutes and seconds as you would page numbers
  • Make note of at least two statements or moments in the video that bring to mind any of the other texts.
