You See Publics: Proposals for Projects that Activate Campus Spaces and Invite New Forms of Participation is a student created exhibition installed in Geisel Library. This exhibit presents project proposals designed by undergraduate students in a Spring 2019 Communication seminar entitled “Politics and Cultures of Display” with Professor Brian Goldfarb.  During the course, students examined institutions and practices of public exhibition and display. While focusing attention on critical analysis of practices of display as a site of research, the students also engaged in alternative approaches to curatorial practice and rethinking exhibition strategies.

The 9 pieces include:

  • Confession Cube: Share Your Secret, Release Your Burden
  • Garden Heartbeats: A Living Wall that Works
  • Halt Sex Traffic Sign
  • Hip Hop Advice
  • Magic Dance Room
  • Renewable Energy: Time to Go Green
  • Reseeding the Land: A Garden of Reflection & Reconciliation
  • Triton Stadium
  • United States Migration Memorial Garden
