Thoughts On Deaccessioning
Marlon Bishop, of WNYC, interviewed me yesterday for a story on deaccessioning. The radio version came out yesterday, but you can read Bishop’s article, Art Deaccessioning: Right or Wrong?, on WNYC’s website, as well as hear a few soundbites from me; Kaywin Feldman, president of the Association of Art Museum Directors and director of the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts; and anti-deaccessionist, Lee Rosenbaum.
I’m travelling at the moment for a talk on artist consignment agreements and fiscal sponsorships, but will elaborate more on deaccessioning here and on my other blog, The Deaccessioning Blog, soon. What do you think? Deaccession or not? Is there a middle ground?
