Manifestations of Museum 2.0

I don’t know how many people saw this Tino Seghal exhibition last spring at the Guggenheim. I think it’s a good example (based on my humble understanding) of where [Art] museums and exhibitions are/could be headed.  I was able to attend, and able to be a part of the performance, but what was most funny was the look on tourists’ faces as they entered the museum looking around for art objects.  It was pretty clear they had little to no idea that they were a part of the exhibition.


One response to “Manifestations of Museum 2.0

  1. I went to this show! And yes, it was such a creative way to challenge the notion of art/exhibitions/performance. I went with a friend who knew what was going on, but luckily she kept it a secret so the rest of us would be surprised… and was I ever. At first, I had no idea what was going on, and kept thinking “Where are these kids’ parents?!” But after I got the hang of it, it was one of the most memorable exhibitions. The “dancing” in the middle was also breathtakingly beautiful.
