Keynote Address THE QUALITY INSTINCT:
Seeing Art Through a Museum Director's Eye
Maxwell L. Anderson
Dallas Museum of Art
Maxwell L. Anderson, the Eugene McDurmott Director of The Dallas Museum of Art, returns to the Directors Forum to discuss his new book The Quality Instinct: Seeing Art Through a Museum Director's Eye. Part personal memoir, part thinking person's guide to the museum experience, his book is filled with wit, humor, anecdotes and insights from the author's thirty-years in the highly competitive, often contentious art world. Anderson will take us on a grand tour of ancient and contemporary art, sharing five simple metrics of quality that help to increase "visual literacy" as we learn to see, not simply look—and yes, to judge.
