Performance in the museum:
Designing museum exhibitions for narrative, experiential and affective encounters through performative methodologies
Through the application of performative methods and constructed situations, I aim to expand the definition of the art museum as sites of ritual, spectacle, community and participation. By expanding the museum definition with these four spatial qualities, I hope to define the museum by the actions and events that take place within its walls - not by the kind of objects they store or how they display such objects. By determining the museum function by the events that take place within it, the art museum remains discursive.
