Continuing their critical voices lecture series, PAM presents Iwona Blazwick: Just What Is It That Makes Today's Institutions So Different, So Appealing?
Museums have been declared "cemeteries of crucified dreams," yet today arts institutions are more popular than ever before. Blazwick asks, "How and why have museums been transformed from mausoleums to destinations? Why do artists want to exhibit in them? What role do they play in today's society?" Taking the Whitechapel Gallery as a case study, she will explore its spaces and programs, as well as those of other institutions from around the world, and the public's love/hate relationship with them.
