Dragon Psychology 102: Experts React to Revisionist History Podcast “Dragon Psychology 101”
Deaccessioning is not new but it has reached new levels of controversy in the current state of economic hardship facing our institutions at the moment. In the first episode of Season 5 of the podcast Revisionist History titled “Dragon Psychology 101”, Malcolm Gladwell asks the question, ”Why not just sell something to pay the bills?” and proposes that museums are just hoarding if they refuse to sell amidst trying circumstances that result in mass layoffs and financial hardship. #ARCSchat has solicited the help of two experts to react to the episode and directly address this challenging question. Robin Cooper, the Manager of Curatorial Affairs at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, joins to represent the curatorial and cultural interests at play. Nicholas O’Donnell, Partner at the law firm Sullivan & Worcester in Boston, who argued on behalf of the museum membership in the now landmark Berkshire Museum deaccession case and recently presented in front of the US Supreme Court will provide legal insight. #RevisionistHistory(@pushkinpods)(@Gladwell) Episode homepage and audio linkhttp://revisionisthistory.com/episodes/42-dragon-psychology-101

#ARCSchat December: The Post COVID Courier

Filled with worldwide lock downs and government-mandated travel bans, institutions have been forced to dramatically revise how they manage the care of their traveling collections.

As this year winds down to a close, join #ARCSchat as we discuss with panelists Errin Copple of LACMA, Marie Knidler of Louvre Abu Dhabi/Agence France Museums, Stefanii Ruta Atkins of MoMA, and Sara Buehler of the Brandywine River Museum of Art how the uncertain future of the courier might start to take shape, and what permanent changes might actually remain as we move forward.
