Jen Budney: On the Imbecile Institution, Art Museums, Globalization and Contemporary Art, Inequality and Community

Jen Budney, PhD (University of Saskatoon) speaks candidly with Andrew Hunter (AGG Senior Curator) about the contemporary Art Museum as an “Imbecile Institution” that is elitist, uncreative, gendered and hierarchical, a place that doesn’t learn and often fails to live up to its stated PUBLIC role and responsibilities. Based in Saskatoon, she speaks of that communities strengths and struggles, a place of both progressiveness and divisiveness, a “microcosm of contemporary Canada.”
