Clark Remix, April 10th

by on April 17, 2012

Last week we went to see the Clark Institute’s “Clark Remix” show. They are currently renovating, adding a new wing, and in the mean time they have put up this exhibit, and a few other small ones.

In “Clark Remix” there are “more than 80 paintings, nearly 20 sculptures, and more than 300 decorative arts objects from the Clark’s permanent collection.” The viewers are, like a normal exhibit, given the opportunity to look at and learn about the work. There is, however, something different about this exhibit: the museum gives all the visitors electronic tablets into which they can enter a code which corresponds to a specific piece of art in the exhibit, or find that art work in a database, to learn all about the piece’s history and its information.

There’s more though. When you are done looking at the exhibit you are given the option to design your own virtual exhibit with the artworks displayed. I choose to do my exhibit on animals, and I filled my allotted room with artwork involving animals. Other people in our group made a modes of transportation exhibit, one for water, and one of babies. The Clark’s use of technology was very impressive.

If you want to design your own exhibit, but you don’t want to go to the Clark you can design an exhibit online…here.
