 The unforeseen encounters that occur between a work on display in a museum, the space it occupies, and the other works displayed nearby give rise to a variety of meanings, escorting the viewer into a world of rich interpretations. Order & Reorder: Curate Your Own Exhibition is a special program in which the viewer selects the orders or the themes of the works they would like to show. Using items from the museum collection, participants are invited to consider the relationship between works and the order in which they are displayed. It is often said that life is a series of choices. To custom-make your exhibition (or way of viewing) while delving into your own story, all you have to do is make your way to the museum.
