exhibition as a dialogue

Catherine Elwes writes in ‘A Parallel Universe’: “The juxtaposition and re-contextualization of individual works can substantially manipulate and alter meanings and the grouping of works into thematic screenings also tends to narrow the attention to particular aspects of a work. A kind of internal dialogue is set up between the works, a dialogue that creates resonances or even dissonances that would not occur under different conditions (Issues in Curating Contemporary Art and Performance, p.110).”
