On April 9th, 2010, the John B. Hurford '60 Humanities Center presented "What Do Exhibitions Want?", a colloquium on exhibition-making, led by four distinguished curators based in diverse institutional locations—liberal arts college, research university, civic museum, alternative/ artist-run space. Each participant presented a manifesto of curatorial practice. These presentations were followed by an open conversation among the four presenters and audience members, considering the role of the curator in cultivating visual culture across disciplinary boundaries; the institutional elements necessary to integrate the display of art objects within a wider programmatic framework of interdisciplinary inquiry, experimentation, critique, or activism; and the purpose(s) of exhibitions in this contemporary moment of media dissemination, social networking, and other "ethereal" forms.
