Museums have become cultural battlegrounds—monuments to meaning that are struggling to contain democracy. Museums have mushroomed: from audience numbers to board members, from the value of art to the real estate that houses it, and from international interest to the size of local protests. 

Hosts Charlotte Burns and Allan Schwartzman will guide you through the troubled museum system over the next four episodes, beginning on the streets and working our way inside—from the galleries to the staff offices, up to the boardroom. 

In today’s show they ask: if the current model isn’t working - should we just build new museums? 

Guests: Lulani Arquette, Miki Garcia, Roxane Gay, Deana Haggag, Max Hollein, Sandra Jackson-Dumont, Jill Kraus, Dr. Kelli Morgan and Farah Nayeri

New episodes available every Wednesday.
