New York University will host “Les Lieux de l’art” (“Art Spaces”), a roundtable discussion featuring Philippe de Montebello, Fiske Kimball Professor in the History and Culture of Museums at NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts, on Tuesday, September 13, 6:30 p.m. at NYU’s Hemmerdinger Hall, Silver Center for Arts and Science, Room 102, 100 Washington Square East (at Washington Place). Enter at 32 Waverly Place or 31 Washington Place (wheelchair accessible).

The event, co-sponsored by NYU’s Center for French Civilization and Culture and the university’s Maison Française, is in French and is free and open to the public. Call 212.998.8750 or email maison.francaise@nyu.edu for more information. Subway Lines: 6 (Astor Place); A, B, C, D, E, F, M (West 4th Street); N, R (8th Street).

Contemporary art seems to have changed the way we see art, and the places where it is supposed to be presented. Some of the most iconic exhibitions of recent art have taken place outside of the traditional venue of the museum. Is it its destiny to be shown everywhere? Or does the experience of art belong to a certain time and space? Is the situation the same for ancient and for contemporary art?

Joining de Montebello, director emeritus of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will be: Joachim Pissarro, Bershad Professor of Art History at CUNY’s Hunter College, director of the Hunter College Art Galleries, and a curator in MOMA’s Painting & Sculpture Department; Philippe Vergne, director of the Dia Art Foundation and former director of the Musée d'Art Contemporain in Marseille; and Donatien Grau, a contributing editor of Flash Art International who also teaches at the Sorbonne.

Reporters interested in attending the event must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.
