Reprogramming the art museum

Curatorial & education strategies for the 21st century

Conference presented by
UNSW College of Fine Arts : School of Art History and Art Education

Reprogramming the art museum will provide a forum to:

  • debate new models of program and audience development for the 21st century at two critical points: program generation and delivery.
  • explore the implications of these ideas on contemporary art practice.

All presenters (international and local) have been invited to respond to the following broad themes:

  • The evolving role of the contemporary art museum in the construction and distribution of knowledge
  • The civic role of the contemporary art museum in the community
  • Engagement through audience responsive exhibitions and programming

The following leading international practitioners will provide keynote addresses. All have implemented innovative strategies to engage audiences in meaningful exchanges with art, artists and everyday experience.

  • Adam Lerner, director, MCA Denver
  • Lawrence Rinder, director, Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive, University of California, Berkeley
  • Dominic Willsdon, Leanne & George Roberts Curator of Education and Public Programs, SFMOMA, San Francisco

Noted local presenters will also present papers on recent projects in panels of two to three speakers.
