Special MOT Collection: Collection Becoming

The latest exhibition in a series of displays celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Museum of Contemporary Art, this one is more of a meta-level investigation into how the museum's collection came into being and how it continues to evolve. Focusing on themes like how art is chosen for the collection and how pieces are stored when not on display, 'Collection Becoming' provides a behind-the-scenes look at the daily activities at and the process of running a large-scale museum. It also takes up the issue of artistic change, as some pieces can be seen to 'evolve' even between exhibitions, showcasing different aspects of themselves based on how, where and when they are displayed. Sounds like an interesting one for anyone interested in the inner workings of the museum industry and the business of art in general.
