Welcome to Spring 2015!

The modern art museum is not just a repository of the past, but an institution with the ability to shape and create meaning. This course explores the role of the museum in the 20th and 21st centuries, considering a diverse range of issues associated with the modern art museum, from the museum’s evolution from the private interior to the public space; to the politics of exhibiting and viewing; to the shaping of personal, national, and global identities through the museum site.
