As part of GoMA’s work within Glasgow Museums we are involved in conversations and discussions with other peers across the wider museums sector. Last year Victoria Hollows, Contemporary Arts and Museum Manager at GoMA, was asked by Bernadette Lynch to submit a paper to a publication she was guest editing. This Special Issue of Museum Management and Curatorship: ‘Working through conflict in museums’ is now available and there is more information over on the blog ‘I Object!: Working through Conflict in Museums’.
Victoria’s paper is called ‘The performance of internal conflict and the art of activism’ and there is also another paper in the publication from our colleagues Aileen Strachan and Lyndsey Mackay over in the Curious team called ‘Veiled practice: reflecting on collaborative exhibition development through the journey of one potentially contentious object’.
