Abstract

Museums and galleries are places of world-making. They document, display, and interpret artefacts deemed worthy of our attention, objects considered significant for collection and preservation. Such objects are carefully staged to relay certain stories, while other stories are concealed by their absence. Museum and gallery professionals culturally construct exhibits and manipulate, sometimes unknowingly, our perspectives and perceptions to position how we think and feel, not only as we encounter artistic and cultural material, but more broadly as we build knowledge about ourselves and the world. As highly respected cultural institutions, museums and galleries confirm or challenge our sense of reality – the way we understand the past, the way we mediate the present, and the way we imagine the future.
