USC International Museum Institute and J. Paul Getty Museum present:
Engaging Adult Publics: Museums Today and Future
Art and Beyond: Some Contemporary Challenges for Art and Anthropology Museums
Ivan Gaskell, Harvard Art Museum
In this lecture, Gaskell questioned the preponderant Western concept of “art,” examined aspects of cultural appropriation in respect to art and museums, and suggested how we might expand the purview of art and anthropology museums by the enhancement of museum scholarship, and the participation of artists and interested communities.
