June Speaker Series

The Garden as Museum:
A Brief History of the Accession Tag

Presenter: Víctor Ballesteros

Víctor will present a brief history of the likeness between botanical gardens and cultural institutions such as museums and art galleries.

By focusing on VanDusen Botanical Garden’s use of display labels and accession tags he will discuss how practices such as classification, naming, collecting, and archiving are inscribed in the experience visitors have of the garden and are central to both scientific and cultural institutions alike.
