Of Accidental Origin
Work from the Lamont Gallery Collection

Saltonstall House Curatorial Project
Phillips Exeter Academy

This year, a team of students has embarked on a curatorial project to position the arts as a platform for sparking conversations about Exeter, drawing from objects from the Lamont Gallery’s permanent collection.

The site of the students’ curatorial intervention is the Principal’s house.  A space for campus-wide afternoon teas and a haven of alumni and Trustee meetings, Principal MacFarlane’s Dining Room in Saltonstall House is one of the most public, yet private rooms on the Phillips Exeter Academy campus. Those who gather in the space are united by their connection to Exeter, but diverse in their ages, backgrounds, and points of view.

Visitors are invited to reflect on the rich and varied journeys made by students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents, using the art on display—now, no longer accidental—as a catalyst for purposeful learning.

More information about this project and other student projects will soon be available on our Student Exhibitions page which is currently under construction.

For now you can visit the Of Accidental Origin blog to see more and even take a quiz to see which piece of artwork you are!

Also, check out the video, Of Accidental Origins: Work from the Lamont Gallery Collection, created by current student Lucas Schroeder’18 which catalogs the process of creating this exhibition.


Lamont Gallery programs are supported in part by the Michael C. Rockefeller ’56 Visiting Artists Fund.
