“Beyond the Academy: Research as Exhibition” – a symposium at Tate Britain Auditorium on Friday 14 May 2010, 10.00–17.30, featuring, among others, Bruno Latour and Noortje Marres.
The exhibition is increasingly being reframed as a ‘research output’, but what can new forms of research and collaboration bring to the concept and curatorship of the exhibition? Is the idea of the exhibition being distorted or creatively extended by new disciplinary practices and knowledge? In what ways do new forms of research exhibitions create new types of knowledge and experience for the audience?

Update (6 May 2010): I’ve been just told that Latour will also take part in a panel discussion at the following event at the LSE in the afternoon of 14 May:
Sociology Department conference
