Speaker: Victoria Walsh

Time: 2pm-4pm, July 21

Venue: Conference Room, Inside-Out Art Museum

The lecture is in English, with Chinese translation


Abstract:  The modern and contemporary art museum has historically held a pivotal role in creating, confirming and promoting the aesthetic and cultural value of works in its collection and exhibitions. As technology and networked online culture begins to significantly transform artists’ and curatorial practice, and how audiences engage with the art museum both on- and offline, this paper will discuss some of the key issues art museums and curators of contemporary art need to address if both are to remain valued and relevant in the 21st century. Based on two research projects with Tate the presentation will discuss the role and increasing need of practice-based research situated in the museum to help address these urgent issues.
