About this Event

The ‘house museum’, even if historically defined, still proves a fundamentally contemporary and elusive subject.

Uniting theorists, curators, architects, and historians from around the globe in one-on-one conversations, the House | Museum Conversation Series at the Lyon Housemuseum Galleries aims to clear intellectual space for ranging discussion on the House, the Museum, and the House Museum. By simultaneously traversing these cultural and typological junctions, openings for (re)thinking origins, developments, preoccupations, perversions, failures, futures, and other House Museum things may appear.

House | Museum Conversation Series is curated by Scott Woods @harryhumboldt (Academic Fellow in Architecture at MSD) and is a partnership between Melbourne School of Design and Lyon Housemuseum Galleries.
