Unfinished Business: 21st Century Home Economics
Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, December 2012
Lead Curator, Coordinator, and Media Producer
This community-curated, participatory exhibit explores first generation of Home Economists who sought to create a world with healthy food for all, fair labor practices for domestic work, ethical consumerism, and community childcare solutions. Through hands-on activities, multi-media, and experimental exhibition techniques, this exhibit draws connections from that time of change to our contemporary moment, and re-imagines the domestic space as a site of social change.
“Unfinished Business: 21st Century Home Economics” and its accompanying paper won the Brooking Prize for creative innovation in museum exhibitions from the American Alliance of Museums.
