Contemporary Art and Its Audience

Carl Nordenfalk and Edgar Peters Bowron discuss some noteworthy changes in art museums, collections, and audiences in Europe and the United States in the mid-twentieth century. Topics include the growth of American collections; and, in both locales, the increasing numbers of patrons and visitors, museum education and marketing efforts, and the funding of museums.

At the time of this interview, Nordenfalk, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1978-79, 1980-82), was former director of the Nationalmuseum of Sweden. Bowron was director of the North Carolina Museum of Art.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
