"THEM: Images of Separation," is a traveling exhibition that showcases items from popular culture used to stereotype different groups. The negative imagery -- found on postcards, license plates, games, souvenirs and costumes -- promoted stereotyping against such groups as Asian-Americans, Hispanics, Jews and poor whites, as well as those who are "other" in terms of body type or sexual orientation.
Working transparently, museums must now move beyond mere representations of evidence to demonstrate explicitly how knowledge is developed, shared, or revisited. Making evident the gaps or omissions in our knowledge, identifying marginal or absent voices, helps audiences to explore with confidence and promotes engagement through nuance, perspective, and diversity. Authoritativeness has not enhanced cultural institutions, but authenticity has. Leveraging – and sharing – authenticity, museums must speak from multiple points of view, encouraging stakeholder and audience participation, even while bolstering scholarship. In assisting audiences to better understand how the past informs the present, how patterns and similarities can be observed in the seeming diversity and idiosyncrasies of history, museums can transcend institutionalism or parochialism to demystify a shared humanity in a singular world.
The entire museum has been divided into many compartments, namely anthropological division and display section, etc. In archaeological section there were coins, statues, bricks, etc. Anthropological section mainly displayed relics and remains of ancient species of animals, and human beings. Manuscripts in different languages were also displayed in archaeological sections. Charts, paintings, murals, etc. were the attraction in the archaeological section. We saw ancient dresses, royal robes and weapons of great rulers. Coins of different periods of time made us familiar with the artistic skill and technological progress of the time. It was very interesting to see the historic Ajanta and Ellora paintings in one corner of the museum. We also enjoyed the vivid depiction of the lives of Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Lord Buddha. The visit of this section presents a glimpse of the glorious past of India.
