The teens curate the Museum

Seminar for teenagers
March-May 2023

What happens behind the showcases of museums? Who are the people working in their spaces? What are their tasks? How do they curate the artefacts and how do they design exhibitions? Are there alternative ways of museum presentation?

These are some of the questions that will be tackled in the seminar organized by the Canellopoulos Museum. Ten teenagers will work with museum specialists (archaeologists, conservators, architect-designers, graphic designers, curators of contemporary art, etc.) trying to learn the ‘secrets’ of their work. Walking together in the galleries, they will discuss the current exhibitions and how they were made, and they will express their views on what should change in future. Then, they will try to design a small exhibition/installation, working on a selected group of objects.

In that way, the teenagers will learn how a museum works and they can start imagining the museum of the future!
