DEBATE ABOUT "THE ROLE OF MUSEUM"

posted by John Powell

DEBATE ABOUT "THE ROLE OF MUSEUMS" Museums are our new churches,as agreed by many.Millions flock to them to be inspired,or distracted from the times...; *Couldn't museums do a better job at displaying art in a way that fully engages our emotions?* Why can't museums organize their collections in such a way as to convey art's life-enhancing possibilities and even inspire us to become better people?*Can art make you become a better person?*But isn't that taking the "art as religion" line a bit too seriously?*Does it implies that,museums have a social function,even a didactic role to play?*The museums ever soaring visitors proved that museums are already doing a great job? *"ARGUE FOR OR AGAINST THE MOTION": MUSEUMS ARE BAD AT TELLING US WHY ART MATTERS?

GREGG SIMPSON: THE ATLANTEAN YEARS, 1970-1975

posted by Gregg Simpson

July 22-Sept. 2, 2012 at the Museu Dom Dinis, Estremoz Portugal. "In this period I began to infuse into my work a deep interest in various occult subjects, alchemy, and mythology, especially the legend of Atlantis. This was also the period of my career which came to the attention of several leading writers on Surrealism, notably José Pierre and Sarane Alexandrian, who both published my work in academic studies, art history books and periodicals.
