Art Museum Education:
Facilitating Gallery Experiences
by Olga Hubard
(Palgrave Macmillan, 2015)
Read book review by João Pedro Fróis
published in Curator: The Museum Journal
How can museum educators – and others who teach in galleries – facilitate experiences with works of art that are meaningful to viewers? What is the role of dialogue in these experiences? How might educators negotiate divergences between visitors’ perspectives and official information? What is the place of emotions and bodily sensations in art viewing? This book positions gallery teaching as a sophisticated endeavour, rooted in sound understandings about the complexities of art interpretation and its mediation.
