museum response

Read the article, visit the Baltimore Museum of Art(don\’t need to visit, I\’ll give you the photo), and write a response.Part 1. Read Carol Duncan and Allan Wallach, “The Universal Survey Museum.”Here are some questions that will help you take notes on the reading. You will need to know the answers in order to complete Part 2.What is the “universal survey museum?”What museums do the authors use as their examples?Duncan and Wallach use several interchangeable terms to describe the museum, including: “an ensemble” (p. 51), “a complex” (p. 52) and “a totality” (p. 53). These terms all roughly mean the same thing. What do all three terms capture?What happened to the experience of the visitor when museums shifted from princely collections to public institutions (55-58)?What do Duncan and Wallach mean when they say the museum has a “hegemonic” function? (59)Part 2. Pick two different artworks in the museum. One artwork should be located in the Modern Art/Cone Collection section, and one located in any other gallery in the museum.
