What does this one do?

What does this one do? interrogates the relationship between engagement and entertainment.  Recent large-scale exhibitions have cultivated audience expectations of how we participate with art in a gallery space. With increased recognition of the visitor and the rise of an audience voiced by social media, what does it actually mean to engage? 

Guest curated by Carly Grace and Michelle Mountain through the Deakin University Museum Studies Alumni Program.
