Everyone is choosing sides lately: Team Coco, Team Edward, Team Jacob. At the Walker Art Center, chief curator Darsie Alexander has decided to do something different, sharing the playing field instead of competing on it.
Beginning December 16, the Perlman Gallery will give equal space on their walls to all, allowing Walker staff and museum-goers alike to curate the exhibition "50/50: Audience and Experts Curate the Paper Collection."
