Angela Demma, the Judge James A. and Verna von der Heydt curator, talks about the artist interventions happening throughout the museum.
We want to include multiple voices throughout the museum, and “interventions” offer new perspectives, sometimes to challenge the status quo.
Artists work in museum spaces to respond to issues, ideas, events and eras through performances and temporary installations. Hopefully, the interventions encourage dialogue.
Interventions are also ways of activating spaces — such as the current installation by Chad Taylor on the museum roof.
