Prototype: Altaesthesia

An Altaesthesia exhibition curated by Miguel Novelo Cruz; view the entire exhibition here. Click image to enlarge.

This Rethink: Web workshop prototype asks the question: What would happen if we encouraged community members — rather than the museum — to curate exhibitions? This experiment targets prohibitive social, economic, and cultural conditions surrounding access to art objects. We give you a gallery, and a collection; you decide what it means.
