In course of the Vienna Art Week 2010 there is a panel discussion at the KHM right before the official opening of Story Behold, Story Betold:

Gods and Monsters: Contemporary Art in Historical Museums
Monday, November 15, 2010, 6:00 p.m.
Rotunda, 1st floor

Marie-Laure Bernadac, curator of contemporary art, Louvre, Paris
Douglas Druick, curator of European painting and sculpture, Art Institute of Chicago
Dmitri Ozerkov, head of contemporary art, Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg
Colin Wiggins, curator and head of education, The National Gallery, London
Moderator: Jasper Sharp, curator and writer, Vienna

Recent years have seen an increasing re-engagement with historical modes of representation on the part of both contemporary artists and curators. Dialogues between old and new – whether sensitively orchestrated or more deliberately provocative and confrontational – present particular challenges to institutions and their audiences. This discussion will explore the various strategies adopted to integrate contemporary art and artists in historical museums, from residencies and commissions to temporary installations and non-chronological collection installations. Drawing on their experience, an international panel of museum curators will consider both the opportunities and pitfalls of such endeavors.
