Public Art Museum

HUGH LANE -- David Carrier will deliver a free lecture on "The Public Art Museum" in Dublin's Hugh Lane Gallery at 1900, Thursday, May 20, 2004. Carrier's lecture is one in a series that examines theories about current art practice, curation and the role of the museum in the 21st century.

The lectures in the Hugh Lane provide a locus around which other opportunities for exchange are arranged to benefit artists.
