#MuseumWeek, dia 4

O dia 4 da #MuseumWeek teve, como tema, #BehindtheArt, promovendo o edifício que sustenta a obra exposta. Desfilaram as imagens de edifícios evidenciando um uso anterior à função museológica, historiografias da arquitetura dos museus, salas e vitrinas ainda vazias ou museografias arcaicas… Foi um dia de viagens ao passado, com fragmentos de uma história ignorada ou esquecida.

Na minha leitura, hoje, dominaram os museus ingleses, pela lógica e adequação dos conteúdos que propuseram.

A história do British Museu foi traçada da Montagu House à cúpula de Foster.

The Great Court roof has 3,312 glass panels, each one unique as the space is actually asymmetrical #BehindTheArtpic.twitter.com/I05lx37fbf

A história do Natural History Museum conta-se de fora para dentro, ainda com as salas vazias.

But some things change very little. Our Mineral gallery in 1923 was much the same as it was in 1881… #BehindTheArt pic.twitter.com/CNOyXoaPk6

…And the Mineral gallery is still the same today. The only one that hasn’t changed layout in 132 years #BehindTheArtpic.twitter.com/rWNfWg05qC
