Should Texas Museums Have Artist Board Members?

Noting the flap over the departure of the artist-members of LA MOCA’s board of directors, D Magazine‘s Peter Simek asks if the Dallas museums ought to consider getting some. Simek points out that audience-centric museums need not suck, using Nicholas Serota’s Tate Modern as an example, and crediting Serota’s use of input from contemporary artists in the Tate’s planning that helped make it exciting. Bob, who commented on the piece, thinks that artists don’t know how to run museums, but Mike Morris thinks they do. Poll forthcoming!
