Bare Identities: Team Approach to Mounting An Exhibition

View a gallery slideshow of the installation of the exhibit and the final show >

Smith's Summer Institute in Art Museum Studies (SIAMS) recently presented a student organized exhibition titled Bare Identities: Looking Beyond the Human Form. The show featured 20 works from the Museum of Art that focus on the human figure, exploring how artists use various types of media to convey abstract ideas about identity in visual form.

The exhibition was the culmination of the six–week SIAMS program, designed to give students a thorough introduction to the world of art museums and to help them understand the basic functions of these institutions— collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting the art. This highly competitive, international program accepts 15 upper–level undergraduates and new graduates each year.
