Have museums been too generous with naming rights?

Have museums been too generous with naming rights? | ICOM Network News | Scoop.it
Across cultures and time philanthropy has been synonymous with public benefit. The ancient Greeks considered it to be one of the cornerstones of democracy and the word translates literally from Greek as ‘love of mankind’. Selflessness is at the core of the act. Maimonides, the 12th-century Jewish philosopher, claimed that giving anonymously to an unknown recipient ranked highest on his Golden Ladder of Charity.

These sentiments are fully in line with the ICOM’s definition of a museum as ‘a non-profit, permanent institution in the service of society and its development, open to the public…’ that safeguards the ‘heritage of humanity and its environment for the purposes of education, study and enjoyment’.

Technology, social media can take India's museum movement forward - NewsDog

In an interview given to ANI recently, Mr. Vinod Daniel, Chairman of AusHeritage, Australia's international cultural heritage network, said the museum movement in India needs to be given a major boost and be devoid of government interference unless absolutely necessary.

He said,"I have done a lot of work with museums in about 50 countries. I am the vice chairman of the International Council of Museums Committee for Conservation. In the Indian context, the museum movement hasn't taken off. We must understand and acknowledge that museums play a key part in the promotion of a country's culture and heritage."

Museum heads should stay longer to develop, implement vision: Met Director

Museum heads should stay longer to develop, implement vision: Met Director | ICOM Network News | Scoop.it
Vinod Daniel, Chairman of AusHeritage and Vice Chairman of the International Council of Museums – Committee for Conservation, was not so circumspect.
“They have got to appoint permanent directors, not have bureaucrats take an additional role. Very often it’s a bureaucrat who takes an additional role as the Director of an museum. That’s a problem. On an average, it’s mostly bureaucrats who probably stay at the most about six months. They need to understand what leadership is and working with a bureaucracy is,” Australia-based museologist and conservator Daniel, who has been working on restoration projects in India and in several other countries, told IANS separately.

Owners, Daniel said, also tend to damage their collections by displaying them in drawing rooms where the air-conditioner is switched on. "Exposing collections to varying temperature and humidity causes expansion and contraction that leads to cracks. If one wishes to display items, putting them in a glass case that reduces the variance is a good idea," said Daniel, who is also the vice-chairman of the International Council of Museums Committee for Conservation.

The Stedelijk’s statement says it believes the task of a museum is “to promote art, try to show works that are not yet known to the public and in order to do so, build connections with private collectors. It is not the role of a museum to determine authenticity of a work.”

In response to this statement, France Desmarais, director of programs and partnerships for the International Council of Museums in Paris, which has established codes of ethics for art institutions, said, “It’s more complicated than that.”

According to the International Council of Museums (ICOM), the possible consequences of very high or very low temperatures and relative humidity are physical damage (e.g. distortion, crack, separation of canvas and paint), chemical degradation, as well as activation of insects and fungi. Temperature and humidity are interconnected, but a temperature increase is enough to speed up the chemical processes. At 30℃, some of the corrosive reactions can be twice as fast as at 20℃.

La strage (silenziosa) dell’arte

La strage (silenziosa) dell’arte | ICOM Network News | Scoop.it
Perché ICOM? Perché il ruolo dei musei, negli ultimi anni, ha sconfinato dal mero compito conservativo ed espositivo e una grande importanza ha assunto la ricerca così come la tutela dell’arte. «In tempi recenti — conferma Desmarais — i professionisti della museologia hanno dovuto fronteggiare emergenze che non si vedevano dai tempi della II guerra mondiale. E hanno dovuto aggiornare competenze e tecniche: per esempio, in caso di conflitto, vengono applicati metodi precisi per valutare i danni all’arte. Senza contare il ruolo chiave nella lotta al traffico illecito di opere d’arte e di pezzi antichi».
