An Interview with Artist Fred Wilson
Graham, Mark A.
Journal of Museum Education, v32 n3 p209-217 Fall 2007
The medium of artist Fred Wilson is the museum. He delves deep into museum collections to expose unexamined assumptions about power, place, privilege, and history. His installations include wall labels, educational materials, lighting, and non-traditional pairings of objects. His work is not only about the objects on display, but about how the whole museum environment can generate meaningful questions about art, history, and the role of the museum in its community. In this interview, Fred Wilson discusses how he works with the objects, places, and people that are part of the museum environment. (Contains 3 notes.)
