34. Dealers, Exhibitions, Museums and Critics

For a full understanding of art it is imperative to know something of how it is 'used' by society - how, and why, and by whom it is bought and sold, treasured in museums, presented in exhibitions. Certain films in this section profile major museums and public collections, looking at their historical, political and sociological roles. Others center on the issues raised in art dealing, and on the presentation of different kinds of exhibition to the public.
