Abstract:

4e de couverture: Exhibitions for Social Justice, by Elena Gonzales, assesses the state of curatorial work for social justice today in the Americas and Europe. Gonzales analyzes and examines best practices and interesting new curatorial work to support all those working on exhibitions. From sharing authority to inspiring action, from building solidarity to forging long lasting memories, Gonzales seeks to share curatorial practices that lie at the nexus of contemporary museology and contemporary neurology. Specifically, Gonzales looks at where curators can enhance the effects of their work by making the most visitors' physical and mental experience of exhibitions. The book draws ethnographic and archival work by Gonzales at over twenty institutions with nearly eighty museum professionals as well as scholarship in the public humanities, visual culture, cultural studies, memory studies, and brain science. Many scholars have established the possibility of museums working for social justice and documented that reality. Others have provided diverse examples of curatorial work for social justice. Gonzales's project steps back from the detailed institutional histories of how exhibitions come to be. Instead, she builds a set of curatorial practices by examining the work that goes into the finished product in the gallery. Working for social justice through exhibitions is one way to enhance the sustainability and relevance of museums. Museums have the power to help our society become more hospitable, equitable, and sustainable. The goal of this book is to support museum professionals and other cultural workers in making and making exhibitions that work for social justice.
