What are the claims of contemporary artists and representatives of the art community to museums?
Tell us about your own. The other day in New York, actions began against the management of the Museum of Modern Art. Activists, artists, and curators are calling for MoMA to be" dismantled " in its current form. What doesn't suit the activists, why the gap has formed: is it true that museums continue to be an elite and inaccessible structure (is the situation different in America and Russia)?
As an artist, I have a question about the artist's interaction with the museum. It now looks one-sided (I'm talking about St. Petersburg, I don't know how things are in Moscow or other Russian cities). There is no public information about the selection of artists to participate in an exhibition (such as open calls in private galleries). There is no procedure or regulation for museum curators to meet artists. There are no methods of interaction. Just some personal connections. And that's why there are a lot of questions about which artists are included in the museum's clip and why. I want more openness and some clear communication procedures.
I agree with Nadezhda's words, but I do not have enough understanding: the exhibition policy of museums, their system of selecting authors for projects. In simple terms, I want to understand why the authors on display in the museum are truly outstanding contemporary art. After all, one of the functions of the museum is to form what is “taken into the future”from the entire huge layer of art of our days
