The Showroom and Afterall are pleased to invite you to a seminar with London-based artist Neil Cummings.

Neil will present Museum Futures: Distributed (32min), made in collaboration with Marysia Lewandowska and commissioned by Moderna Museet for their Jubilee year, 2008.

Museum Futures: Distributed is a machinima record of the centenary interview with Moderna Museet’s executive Ayan Lindquist in June 2058. It explores a possible genealogy for contemporary art practice and its institutions, by re-imagining the role of artists, museums, galleries, markets, manufactories and academies.

The screening will be followed by a discussion on issues related to the films exploration of how we might imagine the future of art practice, arts institutions and the museum.

You can read the transcribed machinima dialogue
