Format Option: Social Media Series

January 15, 2021

A micro exhibition featuring an episodic series of events, related biographical sketches of members of a community, clusters of objects that share a common format or theme may be exhibited as a series of Instagram posts or tweets.

See, for example, this series of Instagram posts from spring 2020 by Yale Collection of American Literature Research Assistant Emma Brodey. Organized while Emma was studying from home after the COVID-19 campus shut down,  each of her posts explores an aspect of being homebound in images from the Beinecke’s collections: #BeineckeByEmma.
