In this episode of The Museum a curator has a stint in jail. The BM wants to inspire people who don’t usually visit the collections, so they’re taking drugs to Pentonville Prison – all safely contained in an art installation. Meanwhile Venetia Porter, a five-foot, shaggy-haired whirlwind, is being the guinea pig for another new policy. The Museum wants to show how present cultures are just as important as the past, and her ambitious exhibition of modern art from the Middle East brings together artists from across religious and political divides. Venetia likes being a guinea pig, but will her exhibition be a success?
The Museum: Curators Of The Here And Now will be repeated on ABC2 – Sunday, January 18 at 7:00pm
