In Sight/ On View: Museums as Site of Inquiry

The Art History Graduate Student Association at the University of Illinois at Chicago, with the Museum and Exhibition Studies program and the College of Architecture and the Arts, is pleased to present “In Sight/On View: The Museum as Site of Inquiry,” an interdisciplinary symposium that will investigate museum practices and the evolving social and cultural contexts of today’s institutions.

As museums confront changing demographics, new technologies, challenges to traditional narratives, and shifting patterns of cultural consumption, fundamental and sometimes uncomfortable changes are necessary. These paradigm shifts require a reassessment of the ideologies that have informed the collection, presentation, and interpretation of culture in museums.
