Reading the Art World
September 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Georgina Adam author of The Rise and Rise of the Private Art Museum
Join Megan Fox Kelly on Tuesday, September 14 at 1pm ET as she interviews veteran arts journalist Georgina Adam, author The Rise and Rise of the Private Art Museum for the next installment of Reading the Art World, an interview series and podcast with leading art world authors.
Publishing September 30, The Rise and Rise of the Private Art Museum is a fascinating investigation by Adam into the global proliferation of the private museum in the 21st century and its implications for society and the arts. As private museums have been accused of being tax-evading vanity projects or ‘tombs for trophies,’ Adam argues the picture is far more complex and nuanced.
