Residents Alison Burstein and Brian Droitcour present a workshop series organized as a part of The Luminary’s year-long “Commoning the Institution” residency session. These workshops will bring together a group of individuals to explore the question: How do art organizations talk to their audiences, and what opportunities exist for audiences to talk back? Taking interpretive materials and visitor surveys as two traditional platforms for communication within art organizations, the “Open Channel” sessions will investigate the formats and writing styles that art organizations commonly use and will work toward proposing new, experimental approaches.
The workshops will culminate in a public discussion on 6/30/18 from1-3pm. Alison, Brian, and the workshop participants will present their findings and invite guests to respond to the newly created templates reimagining how institutions engage with their publics.
