Abstract

The research-led exhibition experiment Display at Your Own Risk (Wallace and Deazley 2016) provides an exciting opportunity to ask some fundamental questions regarding the behavioural gaps between ‘what we say’ and ‘what we do’ in regard to museum practice and with art/images. Sometimes this is driven, as the exhibition organizers point out, by the gap between institutional policies and public understanding. By selecting 100 digital surrogate images of public domain works for this exhibition and printing them to the underlying artwork’s original dimensions this exhibition poses some interesting questions.
