  • Re-envisioning the Art Museum

In Michael Govan's public lecture, entitled A Voice from the Pacific: Re-envisioning the Art Museum he offers his thoughts on what the museums of the 21st century could be. He questions the fundamental purpose of traditional encyclopaedic museums and suggests ways of making museums representations of the present rather than repositories of the past.
