“What is the Future of Museum Architecture?” a panel discussion on January 13, will be presented by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) at the Dahesh Museum of Art, 6 to 8 pm.
The panel will explore the current state of museum architecture. Museums across the country have commissioned architecturally exciting buildings. While the results may be distinctive, there are concerns in the art community about the cost and functionality of these new spaces. This panel discussion will focus on the architectural process of creating museum spaces that support the needs of the public, curators and artists and will include discussion of the new MoMA and plans for the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Panel participants will include Daniel Libeskind, architect; Glenn Lowry, director, The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Victoria Newhouse, independent scholar; Malcolm Rogers, director, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Moderator is Paul Goldberger, dean, Parsons School of Design, architecture critic, The New Yorker.
Admission to the ADAA panel is $25 per person. Advance registration is required. For information, 212-940-8925 or email the ADAA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
