Artists Work in Museums: Histories, Interventions, Subjectivities
ARTISTS WORK IN MUSEUMS brings together artists, historians and museum professionals to explore the history and contribution of artists working in museums as members of staff.
It examines how the museum has functioned as a specific site of cultural production and subjective engagement for artists and designers in their role as directors, curators, project managers, and educators. Drawing on specific case studies and interviews, the essays document the historically contingent, problematic character of the artist museum professional, and his/her agency within the museum system.
The volume is edited by Matilda Pye and Linda Sandino.
