Revealing Museums

How do public art museums function today? Who selects the objects on display and defines the stories that are (de)constructed? What are the value systems underpinning how museum collections and exhibitions operate? In this three-part series of live online conversations, hear from artists, students, and MFA staff as we reveal some of the critical questions, structures, and museum processes, from how collections and exhibitions take shape to how audiences are engaged and narratives (re)interpreted.
