Exhibition titles tend to be straightforward and dry, but the late, great Harald Szeemann made a point of creating titles for his exhibitions that were just as poetic as the artworks on display. I understand wanting to avoid the impulse that you are on a creative plane equal to artists, but that doesn’t mean you have to title the exhibition like it was your (probably) boring Master’s thesis.
Some of my favorite Szeemann titles include:
Austria in the Net of Roses
I Want to Leave a Nice Well-Done Child Here
Blood and Honey
When Attitudes Become Form: Live in Your Head
Surprisingly ornate titles from recent exhibitions:
The Quick and the Dead, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, USA The Ice Cream Show, Loyal, Stockholm, Sweden And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out, Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna
