<3 art | A change of heart - Fred Wilson’s impact on museums
Fred Wilson presents his 1992 project Mining the Museum at the Maryland Historical Society, and demonstrates how it changed the relationship between the staff and the community, the historical society and other local museums, the professional staff and the support staff, the black and white. Wilson’s collaborative process has been shown to contribute to a new museum ethics, by shaping individual and institutional values and has helped move institutions towards greater diversity, equality, and social engagement.
This presentation was part of The Sackler Conference for Arts Education - From the Margins to the Core? - An international conference exploring the shifting roles and increasing significance of diversity and equality in contemporary museum and heritage policy and practice held at The Sackler Centre, V&A, 24 - 26 March 2010.
