Defense of thesis Yannick LANGLOIS (SACRe-Beaux-Arts de Paris)

Dinosaurs, Whales, Sunken Worlds:
a popular genealogy of the exhibition form.

Yannick LANGLOIS, PhD student SACRe/Beaux-Arts de Paris

As a form, a format, even a work in its own right, the exhibition has become increasingly important in the discourses of art and its issues. This is evidenced by developments in research on the history of exhibitions and their uses. By seeking to leave the great historical perspectives, this thesis proposes to find in popular and anecdotal events new possibilities capable of enlivening this exhibition form and its devices, and redefining its models.  
Date and time of the defense: Tuesday, April 27, 9 a.m.  

Public defense by videoconference.
