Into the Void: Museum Exhibitions, Auctions, and Deaccessioning

Last Thursday's New York Times has an interesting article by Fred Bernstein on the current exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum concerning donated artworks and fund raising.

Museum auctions are nothing new — many institutions sell pieces donated by artists or collectors to raise money for programs. But the Guggenheim has taken things a step further, mounting a major exhibition with the intention of selling its contents.

I'm quoted in the article, and there's a bit on the relationship between this exhibition and deaccessioning.
