Guided Tour: Museums in Cinema at BAMPFAJuly 6, 2016 - August 31, 2016

Given the dual nature of BAMPFA, a museum and a cinematheque in one, perhaps planning a series of films looking at museums was inevitable. Aptly, several of the films in the series detail the process and challenges of museum building projects, tracing the arc from the ideal to the real through observing planning meetings and budget discussions and venturing behind the scenes where conservators and curators make decisions about the preservation, selection, and presentation of art and other cultural objects.
