Museums in the 21st Century, presented by MoMA's Director Glenn Lowry at ACMI

On the 24th of June 2010 (2h30 pm), the Australian Center For The Moving Image will host a presentation at the ACMI Cinemas lead by the Director of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Glenn Lowry.
Based on MoMA's activities, Glenn will classify the changing aspects of art collecting, exhibiting, commissioning work and how institutions are collaborating with the intent of expanding their exhibition space and offer to their visitors, thus providing an idea of the current trends and future moves of museums in this new century.
The event will include a panel session chaired by ACMI Director Tony Sweeney and featuring Director of Kaldor Public Art Projects John Kaldor, artist, academic and writer Robert Nelson, and Director of the MCA, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor.
The panel will pinpoint how institutions are shifting their artistic focus and realigning their programmes to maintain relevance in a time of rapid change, including the ways digital technology and audience demands are recreating the sector.
Admission for Museums in the 21st Century is free and tickets will be available on the day from the Tickets & Information Desk.
