Description
Museums are understood as publicly significant spaces. But rarely are they thought of as public spaces. How do we move beyond museums as white cubes and understand them as active players in a discussion about art, community, culture, and politics? This panel will consider museum grounds as unique places where culture, public space, community, and private interests intersect.
