Radical Museology / Working the Collection

"Drawing from Claire Bishop's recently published Radical Museology Or What's Contemporary in Museums of Contemporary Art? and taking place against the backdrop of our reading of the Arts Council England Collection, this roundtable focuses on the economic, historiographical, geopolitical and wider societal stakes of public acquisition and collection display. Focusing on museums that offer non–conservative and critically–reflective models.

Participants include Jesús Carrillo (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid), Francesco Manacorda (Artistic Director, Tate Liverpool) and Marta Dziewanska (Museum of Modern Art Warsaw). Chaired by Claire Bishop."

The peculiar case of the Icelandic Phallological Museum

"Paris has the Louvre. London has the Tate Modern, and New York the Metropolitan Museum. But Husavik, Iceland–a diminutive village on the fringe of the Arctic Circle–boasts the world's only museum devoted exclusively to painstakingly preserved male genitalia. Founded and curated by Sigurður 'Siggi' Hjartarson, the Icelandic Phallological Museum houses four decades worth of mammalian members, from a petite field mouse to the colossal sperm whale, and every 'thing' in between. But, lamentably, Siggi's collection lacks the holy grail of phallic phantasmagoria: a human specimen. Siggi's world changes dramatically when he receives generous offers from an elderly Icelandic Casanova and an eccentric American. However, as the competition for eternal penile preservation heats up between the two men, Siggi soon discovers that this process is more complicated than it initially appeared. In their debut feature film, Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math follow Siggi on his dogged, often emotional quest to complete his exhibition in a peculiar, yet startlingly relatable, story of self–fulfillment and the value of personal legacies (both big and small)."

Local Projects: growing new audiences through technology

"Local Projects was tasked with growing new audiences through technology for the Cleveland Museum of Art, and created 'Gallery One,' a suite of new interactives that transform the Art Museum experience. Visitors can explore digital versions of the artworks, gathering ideas, and seeing the original context of the artworks themselves. Rather then simply bask in the reflection of others' artworks, visitors to Gallery One create their own works of art, and understand creativity by being creative themselves. Through interactive games, visitors can put their own bodies into the experience, matching poses with figurative sculptures, or browse the museum's collection by making different facial gestures. All of these interfaces are experiences that invite visitors to understand art and art–making through intuition, play and creativity. For those who do not like technology, the traditional design of the galleries means that the interactives are opt–in and do not circumvent the art gallery experience. An expansive interactive wall allows multiple visitors to see all 3,000 artworks on display at the same time, inviting them to curate their own experiences by exploring connections between artworks. Custom tours can be connected to a new iPad application that allows visitors to both navigate the museum through a Director's tour and take tours made by other visitors. Gallery One at the Cleveland Museum of Art will change how visitors understand the artworks and themselves."
