Two exhibition spaces that I've really enjoyed are the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos (Museum of Memory and Human Rights) in Santiago, Chile. I chose these exhibition spaces because their external facades are very powerful, unique and stand out in their respective locations. Also, I chose the Walker Art Center, not only because it's in my hometown, but also because it features outdoor exhibitions, most notably the iconic "Spoonbridge and Cherry" and recently "Hank/Cock," a big blue rooster. Regarding the Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos, I chose it because it was designed in such an intentional manner that creates an embodied experience with the way it tells an important story of Chilean history through a path that begins below ground-level and moves upwards. The museum also features a wall with photographs of some of the victims of human rights violations.
