Exhibitions & Public Interpretation
Recognizing the increasingly blurred lines and fluid boundaries in the presentation and interpretation of material and visual culture, the Center has established Exhibitions & Public Interpretation as a category of funding. Areas of programming considered within this category include public display and/or interpretation of artworks, historical artifacts, scientific objects, living collections, buildings, stories, or ideas; film, video, or other moving-image presentations and technology platforms; and all other forms of exhibitions and public cultural interpretation including those that take place in public spaces, online, and/or make use of participatory strategies.
The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage is pleased to share its new guidelines for the 2014 grant cycle in Exhibitions & Public Interpretation, Performance, Pew Fellowships, and Advancement Grants.

AUTHORSHIP AND CO-AUTHORSHIP
We asked ICA Boston Chief Curator Helen Molesworth what authorship and co-authorship mean to her.
"To be imagined: an exhibition that functions like a rendezvous--a meeting that is unexpected but becomes nonetheless revelatory, so that it is perceived by the members of the audience as happening exclusively for each of them, subjective, irreversible, and unrepeatable."
--Carlos Basualdo, writing in The Exhibitionist No. 7 (January 2013).
