Museum Talk | The Collecting Institution: Acquisitions and Representations

Agustín Pérez Rubio, Frances Morris, Michael Govan, Juan Andrés Gaitán, Eve Tam and András Szántó

This panel discusses how an institution should maintain, build and edit its collection, asking what guidelines exist and how these respond to the demands that arise from specific contexts and needs. It also considers how both past and present factor into the way institutions respond to their roles as curators, cultivators and collectors of cultural knowledge.
