Abstract
In this research I will explore how to make fine art exhibitions, particularly gallery spaces, more approachable, engaging, and able to better serve the communities in which they exist. This document is arranged in two sections. Part One explores theory, while part two demonstrates the use of said theory in an applied project. The first section looks at traditions of Exhibition Design in gallery settings: primarily The White Cube. I will also identify the myriad value models and motivations for appraising and engaging with contemporary art and art experiences. In my research I have found that the multifaceted value of art can be unlocked for Visitors and Collectors through not only acquisition, but also through access. The second half of the document is an exhibition proposal that takes this research into account to develop an inviting, engaging, and dynamic art experience that can be enjoyed by art lovers of all skill levels.
