Museum Meetings Spring 2018 – From the Archive to the Museum
Museum Meetings is a cycle of conversations in art spaces designed for all students. It is dedicated to various aspects of art and museums: art, collecting, display, iconography, techniques and media, conservation, and the role of museums and art archives in society today. The program originates from the Acton Collection and expands to other art locations. All the meetings are conceived as discussions and envisage an active participation.
