How do I cite a museum exhibition?

To cite a museum exhibition, follow the MLA format template.  Include the exhibition’s name as the title of your source, followed by the opening and closing dates of the exhibition and the museum and city as the location:

Unbound: Narrative Art of the Plains. 12 Mar.-4 Dec. 2016, National Museum of the American Indian, New York.

If the exhibition features the work of a specific artist, begin your entry with the artist in the “author” element of the template:

Cave, Nick. Until. 15 Oct. 2016-Aug. 2017, Mass MOCA, North Adams.
