  2. Does the role of an artist at museums stop once his or her art enters the collection and is displayed in the galleries? A growing number of museums are bringing artists into the fold—beyond displaying their works of art—and asking them to call on their own practices to devise creative opportunities.
  3. Panelists include Mark Allen and Elizabeth Cline from Machine Project, who worked together on projects at the Hammer Museum; artist Olga Koumoundouros, who created a Wall Works installation at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, along with Asuka Hisa, Director of Education and Public Programs at the Santa Monica Museum; and Robert Sain, former director of LACMA Lab, and Christoph Korner, partner at GRAFT architects, which designed the Lab's Seeing exhibition.
