A Space for Dialogue began in 2001 to highlight creative and diverse perspectives on the museum's permanent collection through exhibitions curated by Hood Museum of Art interns.

Each year, the Hood Museum of Art offers internships to Dartmouth students entering their senior year. In addition to working within administrative departments, most interns organize a unique Space for Dialogue installation. Working with Hood staff, interns determine a theme and identify objects, help design the installation, write labels and a brochure, and deliver a public gallery talk.

Five 2022–2023 interns curated a Space for Dialogue show, and their installations will be on view in Gutman Gallery through 2023.
