Messing with Museums
Course Time: 75 mins
Can you play tricks on a museum? In Messing with Museums, art world polymath Carla Zaccagnini will illustrate her practice as an artist, curator, writer and teacher through her critical interventions in museums, art schools, exhibitions and art magazines that playfully expose the structures within these institutions. With her unique perspective on both sides with her art making and exhibition making experience, Zaccagnini will talk about the interplay between these two roles and also will reveal important details on institutional collecting methods, their information strategies and financial support systems that enable them to construct and retain value.
