Artforum #60-01 – September 2021 – The Museum Now – Part II

 - Artforum #60-01
Artforum turns to efforts by artists, historians, and curators to rethink the underpinnings of the museum institutions.
As museums around the world reflect on their role in the reproduction of structures of domination, one instructive example is New York's Studio Museum in Harlem, a modest but pivotal institution created in 1968 to champion Black culture and center artists of African descent. To help delineate the museum's history and significance, Artforum organized an intergenerational conversation of Studio Museum leaders and alums—Naomi Beckwith, Thelma Golden, Thomas (T.) Jean Lax, and Lowery Stokes Sims—moderated by David Velasco, the magazine's editor in chief. And: Fall museum shows, Christine Mehring on the Panza Collection Initiative, Daniel Birnbaum on Hilma af Klint's institutional imagination, Yuki Higashino on Yuji Agematsu's zip: 01.01.2020 . . . 12.31.2020, Travis Jeppesen on Shuang Li, Paul Galvez on "Cézanne Drawing," and more than thirty-five exhibition reviews from around the globe.
