This Museum Exhibit Was Completely Curated By Kids
The term “museum curator” brings to mind a professional with multiple degrees and thousands of hours of experience in cultural institutions. But a new museum exhibit at the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland, could change that—69 kids, ages of 6 and 14, curated it. The exhibit, themed “Anything Goes,” shows what happens when children are let loose within a huge museum.
The museum selected the 69 children involved based on a first-come, first-serve application process after the museum put out an open call. The children spent four hours every week on the exhibition, coming up with a theme and doing everything from designing the exhibit to working on the audio guides and promotional materials.
