New Orleans artists Courtney Egan, Sharon Jacques, and Robin Levy selected works in the museum from diverse periods and cultures to be displayed side by side with their own recent creations. The goal of the exhibition was to encourage visitors to question traditional attitudes about the role of museums, curators, and artists in contemporary society. By "reinventing" the museum, Egan, Jacques, and Levy encouraged viewers to rethink the nature of the institution.
