During the final week of the Making Use exhibition, artist Neil Cummings will lead an all-day interactive workshop designed to discuss the possible models of a museum 3.0.
During the workshop, through the use of simple tools, the participants will inhabit 2061 as a shared and contested place, imagining the possible futures of art, the museum, and the cultures in which they are situated. The group will be required to work out how to get there. In preparation, it is kindly requested that all potential participants spend a few minutes thinking about:
“In 2061, the art museum will be .……….. ”
“My interaction with museum 3.0 consists of ……….. ”
“Warsaw has ………. in 2061”
Neil Cummings was born in Wales and lives in London. Neil is Professor of Practice and Theory of Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts, and on the editorial board of Documents of Contemporary Art. Concerned about the lack of ambition in art and its institutions, he's been collaboratively involved in the long-term strategic planning of such institutions as Foundation Galeries Lafayette, Paris (2014–16) Kunsthal Aarhus, Aarhus (2014), Arnolfini, Bristol (2011–12), and Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2008).
