What Now?
Art Practice & Public Institutions Today

This panel discussion will address ways in which art institutions 
reflect the changing nature of art practice. The work of many 
conceptual artists in the 60's and 70's had a strong impact on the 
structure of art institutions and on their evolution over the past 
decades. Does this process continue now, as the public domain is 
radically shrinking? Do tendencies emergent from artists' work still 
shape the structure of museums and exhibitions, or is this process 
now initiated by the market side of the art world? How to balance 
artists' production needs with the available means, when some of the 
more recent technologies are perhaps more suitable for Hollywood 
budgets rather than small nonprofit organizations? What could be new 
possible models for public institutions today? These and other 
related questions will be addressed and discussed by the invited 

Organized by Etant donnes in conjunction with the exhibition "The Eye 
of the Storm: Works in Situ by Daniel Buren" at the Solomon R. 
Guggenheim Museum.
