Experimenting in
the Art Museum

Founder/Editor, ArtMuseumTeaching.com
“people today are increasingly
refusing to be passive
recipients…”
Irvine Foundation, “Getting In On the Act,” 2011 report
“I don’t think ideas are very
valuable in themselves. It’s only
in the DOING of the idea that you
learn anything.” – Mark Allen
“what does it mean to be creative as conscious social
activity – to create a commons, rather
than individualizing creativity?” – artist Josh McPhee
FutureFarmers
artist
collective

artists Marc
Babuthi Joseph
& Rick Lowe
“Almost every day now I think
about the power that INTIMACY
can have, & that we don’t need to
serve a thousand people with each project”
– Allison Agsten, Hammer Museum
“what seems most interesting about this project
is not just what the public experienced, but

everything that took place
behind the scenes.”
– Machine Project artists
“Art and everyday life
share a common and
continuous border. They
coexist in the same reality …
and the edges of the museum
are part of that border.”
– artist Paul Ramirez Jonas
“Shine a Light is a space where we
co-produce museum experiences &
adjust our perspective of where art,
artists, and institutions intersect in
our everyday lives.”
– Stephanie Parrish, Portland Art Museum

“Shine a Light is a platform
that nudges us to wonder,
to consider art museum spaces
as flexible sites.”
RAISING CORE
QUESTIONS:

or serve existing audiences?

What does success look like?
How do we measure success?
“Art is a space where we can cease to subscribe to the
demands & rules of society.
It is a space where we can pretend.
We can play, we can rethink things, we can
think about them backwards?”
– Pablo Helguera
