DEBATE

In 1990, Rosalind Krauss published her seminal essay on museums of contemporary art, arguing that the increased scale of museum architecture led the viewer’s attention to focus on a sublime experience of space itself, rather than to the works of art displayed within it. To what extent have Krauss’s arguments been fulfilled in the last twenty years? And have compelling alternatives to her diagnosis arisen in its wake.

A panel discussion with Bruce Altshuler, Director, Program in Museum Studies, New York University; Manuel Borja-Villel, Director, Museo Nacional Reina Sofia, Madrid; and Beatriz Colomina, Professor, Department of Architecture, Princeton University.
Chaired by Johanna Burton, Director, Bard Center for Curatorial Studies.
