Description

The roundtable brings museum curators, educators, and academics together. Each will present very shortly on their topics and then exchange insights with each other and the audience. The participants have varied experiences of an international scope. Rosie Mills had worked in England before coming to LACMA; Michelle Urberg continues Corine Scheif’s 2015 presentation on the Birgittine Motherhouse in Sweden with an analysis of music within a digital experience. Lia Dykstra will profile an increasingly common Post Modern museum strategy, outreach to contemporary artists, or display of different periods objects, within medieval architectural space. Both Rosie Mills and Leslie Busis Tait work within large institutions where exhibition and on-line strategies are often competitive efforts for space, visitor attention, and funds. Virginia Raguin, moderator, a member of the International Corpus Vitrearum, studies both the work in situ and in museum collections. She developed the on-line study, Mapping Margery Kempe, with the literary scholar Sarah Stanbury.
