Scope and Contents

The curator of the exhibition, Kynaston McShine, writes that this exhibition "surveys the ways in which artists, mostly of hte present century, have addressed the museum, commented on its nature, confronted its concepts and functions, drawn from its methods, and examined its relationship to the art it contains...It illuminates the approaches taken by artists and discusses the aspects of the museum's life on which they have chosen to settle." The Sackners attended this exhibition. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
