Longtime Wolfsonian fans know the secret ingredient that makes our art really shine: the exhibition design! It’s all about detail in our galleries: whether we’re playing with space, riffing on an object motif, or subtly incorporating historical references into the very walls, platforms, and display cases. In this eye-opening conversation between our award-winning chief designer Richard Miltner and curators Shoshana Resnikoff and Lea Nickless, we’re pulling back the veil on how our process-oriented design incorporates curatorial narrative to steer the visitor experience of a Wolfsonian show. After journeying through a visual timeline of our build-outs, you’ll gain appreciation for the massive amount of work behind each tiny decision, and see new dimensions in every thoughtfully chosen color, shape, and pattern.
