De-constructing Collections: Artistic Interventions and Strategies in Museums


Date: Saturday, 10 February 2018
Time: TBC
Venue: Delfina Foundation
Tickets: Place reservations via Eventbrite will open shortly

Following several short residencies by Mark Dion, Delfina Foundation hosts an afternoon of conversations and film screenings that takes as a starting point Dion's long standing interest in examining the way museums construct knowledge through their objects and collections. The afternoon will explore contemporary artistic, scholarly and curatorial strategies that intervene in and interpret collections from an international context.

Further details about the event and information on how to reserve a place will be released shortly.
