Sample text

We either rise up steps, or seek out grand entrances in long blocks of blank wall. We may pass through glass panels into vast atria, and then take escalators to ascend to the specially planned suites of rooms through which we pass, aided by acousti-guides or new digital hand-sets, labels, and other orientation aids to the ‘‘story’’ of art which is on offer. This process is experienced, however, as a ritual. Site and Fac¸ade are followed by a reading of the Passage which Duncan and Wallach compare to ancient labyrinths – those specially constructed, disorienting ordeals that were associated in the ancient world with a psychologically transformative ‘‘spiritual’’ journey through spaces of archaic encounter with terror, abjection, and sexual difference, at the end of which the ‘‘initiate’’ who had endured the ordeal experiences enlightenment or release.

Speaking in reverential tones and calling on the young men to stand in silent awe before the mystery that is Ce´zanne, ‘‘a work of rare emotional delicacy, a revelation that cannot be taught or replicated,’’ the connoisseur exposes the faith placed in the museum’s authenticating frame, that has been undone by Hart’s switch on Nathalie. ’’ Blurred by camera angle and movement, Rachel then appears, standing before Hart’s recasting of a Matisse odalisque who bears her features. All three then leave to make their way to Hollywood and the future, passing Hemingway, on his way into the ‘‘cathedral of art,’’ rambling about his memories of Paris in the 1920s that will appear later in his A Moveable Feast (1964).

An effective challenge to social relations of production, racism, sexism, and homophobia has to be produced as an effect of working, as a creation of changed understanding at the level of the interaction of geographically fluid, psychologically liquid subjectivities, with histories and geographies of difference that can be staged through the museum as an open and productive public institution. It is here that Mastai’s challenge to education or programming as the mere retailing and marketing of the essentially authoritative and in-house manufactured object-based narrative is most radical.
