1.In your opinion what is the role of a museum?
A museum should exhibit, promote, preserve and share the artworks that belong to its collection, and those ones which it exhibits. In this way it must have a staff of excellence to achieve major researches and curatorial projects on the art that the institution owns and shows. And so, if it is a contemporary art museum it should pay its curators to make serious researches on contemporary artists from the whole world.
2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?
The Vostell Museum in Malpartida de Cáceres, Spain, is my favorite museum in the world because of its great Fluxus collection and also for the space in which is located.
Other museums I love because of their interest in non-mainstream arts, such as Latin American art, are: Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Les Abattoirs Museum, Toulouse, el Museo del Barrio and the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York and then the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
