Example text

10 It would take most of the next decade to persuade the conservative Trustees to realize his total vision, including departments of architecture, film, photography, and design. Most radically, there was to be a very active division of what we would now call public programming, an educational wing that would circulate exhibitions, foster understanding, and reach out to share with an as yet unconvinced public the vitality and significance of the culture of their own moment: the modern. The catalogue and the traveling exhibition as forged by Barr were to be the tools of this outreach.

We accept the staggered relations of viewing that the film stages: the desiring art lover is the first rung: he speaks movingly of what these paintings do for him and performs the aestheticization of both art object and art subject. The students stand to be transformed from ignorance and insensitivity into art lovers: the blank pages onto which museum education writes its script.
