Museum Exhibition Project research paper
NB: Please the person who wrote my research last time should work or this one.Or someone read my last
research paper before working on this one.
write a 5?7 page formal research paper for your exhibition. In your research paper, you will form specific
arguments that connect each work of art to your theme/thesis by drawing on academic research for support. It
would be useful to look over some recent museum exhibition catalogues for inspiration before you start to write.
This paper is not a guide to the exhibition and stands alone. Thus, avoid listing artifacts or making direct reference
to your planned exhibition space. This is the place to do as much research as you can and bring it all together to
support your claims for your chosen works of art.
Begin the paper with an introduction to your theme and thesis, and explain your rationale for selecting specific

more connections you might find to support your argument.
Watch your tone. We are in an academic setting. Never write ?I?. First person is not proper and all statements
must be supported with researched academic articles.
For your research, get beyon??????d the encyclopedic resources and that there are authors attributed to the
