A one-day interdisciplinary workshop
The workshop brought together artists, curators, scholars, and scientists to explore the significance of objects in relation to the body and body rituals addressing issues on the communication of knowledge through exhibitions and museum displays. By looking at artefacts linked to diverse practices (from dance to quilt making), the workshop explores the relation of the body with the environment, the rituals and narratives that surround it.
The workshop addressed issues concerning curatorial practice in terms of the communication of cross-disciplinary ideas, modes of display and the perceptions of the visitor that can also be defined as a ritual of interchange between bodies and objects.
It brought together specialists in different fields in an original way fostering exchanges that have continued for some of the participants beyond the workshop.
