An Interdisciplinary Museum
I am supposing to be living in the city of Chicago. This is the third most populous city in the United States only after New York City and Los Angeles. The city has about 2.7 million residents. Chicago had been incorporated as a city in the year 1837. This had taken place close to a portage between the Mississippi River Watershed and between the Great Lakes. The city did experience extremely rapid growth in the middle of the 19th century. As of today the city is nothing less than an international hub for technology, industry, telecommunications, finance and commerce.
The culture of Chicago includes the different contributions to the novels, film theaters, comedy, music and also the creation of what is called as house-music. If I am made the Director of the city museum then I shall incorporate the following three disciplines into the city museum:
a. The Arts Department
This department shall strive to encourage the higher standards of art, to maintain the galleries of that purpose, and also the promotion of the mutual acquaintance of art workers and art lovers. It shall aim to defend the contemporary Chicago active art scene and will have about 30 of the commercial art galleries that shall portray the traditional forms of art.
The Arts Club is a vivid description of the city’s character. Chicago’s active art scene is a true depiction of the art of Chicago. The city is full of cutting edge and other avant- grade art. The arts club at my museum shall be a collection of the various acquisitions that we gather through donations and exhibitions from the artists and the members of the club. The Club shall include the works by people like Alexander Calder, Georges Braque, Paul Klee, Natalia Goncharova, Henri Matisse, Henry Moore, Francis Picabia and most importantly Pablo Picasso.
Some of the notable works in the private collection of the club shall include:
a. Red Petals by Alexander Calder
b. Main staircase for the Arts Club of Chicago by the renowned Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
c. Untitled by Henri Matisse
d. Personage and Birds in front of the Sun by Joan Miro
e. This thing is made to Perpetuate my Memory by Francis Picabia.
f. Head of a Woman by the famous Pablo Picasso.
All the items that have been collected are the most receptive exhibitors of modern art in the United States. The collections are important representations of European modernism and shall showcase all the visual arts.
b. The second discipline shall be dedicated towards the contemporary art of Chicago
This shall also be an arts discipline in the museum that shall cater to all the contemporary art scenes of Chicago. The department will have different objects that are related with the Second World War visual arts. This discipline shall be member supported and also funded privately. There shall further be three other different programming departments namely: performance, education and curatorial departments. The items on display at the discipline shall include the following:
a. Enrico Baj f. Rudolf Stingel
b. Lorna Simpson g. Mona Hatoum
c. Chuck Close h. John Currin
d. Robert Irwin i. Richard Artschwager
e. Vito Acconci j. Lee Bontecou
This department shall have about 2700 objects as well as more than 3000 artists’ books. The primary area of focus will be the different works of art from 1945 to the present. There will be samples from pop art, minimalism, conceptual art and late surrealism from the 1940’s all through the 1970’s. The works from the 1980’s shall be grouped in postmodernism, sculpture, video, installation, photography and all the other related media currents that the other artists explore.
The department shall be host to the several debut exhibitions that shall include Frida Kahlo’s very first exhibition in the United States and also Jeff Koon’s very first solo exhibition. The museum shall be a presentation of the dance, music, theater and other multidisciplinary arts. The department is significant from the point of the depiction of the contemporary art of Chicago. The discipline shall be one of the biggest facilities that is devoted to the art scene of the time.
It shall offer to its visitors a very compelling and an innovative center of all forms of contemporary art. It shall be a success as it the general public will be able to see and experience the greatest works and the ideas of the living artists from the time. It shall be a fine representation of the contemporary visual culture through the means of sculpture, photography, painting, performance, video and film. The department shall strive to engage in a very diverse and broad audience by creating a strong sense of community and also fostering a place for stimulation, contemplation and also discussions regarding the contemporary culture and art.
c. The third and the final department shall be related with the history of Chicago.
The most important aspect of the museum shall be the history department. This discipline shall aim to interpret the history of Chicago. This department shall explore both the American and Chicago history. The exhibitions will draw on from most of the collection of the museum that hosts about 22 million holdings. The museum shall conduct temporary exhibitions which will feature artifacts and objects from the collection at the discipline. The exhibitions will include everything from the art of Chicago to the history of the lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual Chicagoans to the fashion industry of the city. The wing will have a community gallery that will shed some light on one specific Chicago community at a time. Some of the important objects at the exhibitions will include:
e. Political buttons for the campaign of Richard M. Daley
f. Dinner service sets etc.
The museum is a perfect embodiment for the various multi disciplinary perspectives of the city. It would be very easy for all the visitors to travel in between each of the wings. The three wings in the museum namely the arts department, the department for the contemporary arts at Chicago and finally the history department at Chicago are all very much interconnected towards each other.
The three wings are metaphors for each other with each of the symbolizing what is unique and important for the culture of the history of Chicago. The visitor can begin from the arts department all through the wing from the contemporary art of Chicago and finally to the Chicago history department. All of the departments are interconnected to each other as the arts department and the contemporary art of Chicago serving the same goals. The Chicago History Department will present the visitors at the museum with a very vivid description of the objects presented at the zoo.
