At the Museum: Short Films

  • In Person
  • In Person

Artists look at museums with wit, insight, and in some cases, pointed critique in this group of shorts from 1989 to the present. They take us on a guided tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Oakland Museum of California, the Freud Museum London, and the J. Paul Getty Museum, with a brief glimpse of a curator from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
