Windows in Art



A Space for Dialogue 113


On View, a thematic exploration of windows in art, is organized around three central themes: a view into the private world, a view into the public world, and the abstraction of the window itself. Featuring works by twentieth and twenty-first century American artists, the exhibition invites you not only to consider what lies beyond the window, but also how its framing influences our perception.

A Space for Dialogue is a student-curated exhibition program that began in 2001. Hood Museum of Art interns create an installation drawn from the museum's permanent collection by engaging with every aspect of curation, from doing research and selecting objects, to choosing frames and a wall color, to planning a layout and writing labels and a brochure, to giving a public talk. There have been over 100 A Space for Dialogue exhibitions on a wide variety of themes.

A Space for Dialogue: Fresh Perspectives on the Permanent Collection from Dartmouth's Students, founded with support from the Class of 1948, is made possible with generous endowments from the Class of 1967, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Jr. '66, and Pamela J. Joyner '79.
