This panel discussion addresses the kinds of exchanges that take place around dance’s presence in museums and galleries, with curators and other professionals and also with audiences. What opportunities and dilemmas does dance raise for the museum’s ways of working and of communicating with audiences? Does it engage new audiences, create new kinds of audience experiences or engender new ways of looking at collections?
Marie-Anne McQuay, Head of Programme, Bluecoat; Lucy Suggate, dance artist; Catherine Wood, Senior Curator, International Art (Performance), Tate; Sara Wookey, dance artist; chaired by Lauren A Wright, Programme Director, Siobhan Davies Dance
This panel discussion was recorded live at Siobhan Davies Studios, London on Thursday 9 November at the Dance and Art Forum: Why Dance in Museums?
