Made-For-Instagram Exhibits

In the last year, I’ve read so many articles and watched many many videos about the “Made-For-Instagram” type exhibits. For the most part, I’ve shared all of my thoughts here – The Color Factory and The Museum of Ice Cream SF. I understand everyone’s love/hate relationship for it, but I also think it represents an interesting point in time that we currently live in. It’s this idea of delighting people and making others feel like their a kid again. There’s a heavy component focused on getting those perfect shots and dressing up for outings like this and while that’s the worst part for me, I can admit that I am contributing to that as one of those attendees.

I think this video is well made though and paints these exhibitions in a good light. Look at how much fun they’re having! Not too many people have covered this, but for me personally, as much as I enjoy going to these events, I have such a hard time just going through it. I do stress about getting the shot that I need or looking back at my photos at the end of the day and wishing I could have taken a shot differently. For that part of the experience, I don’t think I’m doing it right and I know I’m putting additional pressure on myself. How annoying is that? This weekend, Refinery29 is in town for their 29Rooms exhibit and we’re going to go through this entire thing again. Here’s hoping that I can get out of my head and into just enjoying myself and the event.
