AMST 317 - Museums in a Time of Change

1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 317 ) The current environment creates challenges to ways museums carry out their missions, sometimes forcing institutions to affirm or reimagine how to build better versions of themselves. Through a critical historical survey of the evolution of art museums, we examine their purpose in times of crises. How can we better connect audiences and objects? How do we describe the impact we want to make? If we can’t be all things to all people, how do we determine which of our museum’s “products” to retain, embellish, or drop? From difficult times come opportunities and new habits and ways of thinking.

Prerequisite(s): Permission of the instructor.

One 2-hour period.

Not offered in 2022/23.
