Curators Terry Smith and Isabelle Chartier have collaborated with students in the Museum Studies Exhibition Seminar at the University of Pittsburgh to curate an expanded version of the ICI traveling exhibition Harald Szeemann: Documenta 5. Titled Exhibition^3: Documenta 5, Harald Szeemann, The Artists, the exhibition widens the scope of the initial project curated by David Platzker.

The original 40 items of Documenta 5 ephemera are displayed collectively in one room, while two consecutive rooms delve into the influential career of Harald Szeemann and present an immersive view of the art world in the 1960’s and 70’s through a curated collection of books, catalogs, and other documentary material created at the time of Documenta 5, by or about artists involved in the original 1972 exhibition.
