The rise of private museums. Plus, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures and Renaissance portraits at the Rijksmuseum

This week: is the burgeoning phenomenon of private museums, founded by billionaires and corporations, undermining our public cultural institutions? We talk to Georgina Adam about her new book, The Rise and Rise of the Private Art Museum. Also, Nancy Kenney explores a huge new museum that has just opened in Los Angeles, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, and hears from its curators Doris Berger and Ana Santiago, who have sought to question and expand the traditional Hollywood narrative by highlighting some painful film industry stories—including systemic racism—and incorporating an international array of creators, including the Studio Ghibli lynchpin, Hayao Miyazaki. And in this week’s Work of the Week, as the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam opens Remember Me, an extraordinary exhibition of Renaissance portraits, Matthias Ubl, the show’s curator discusses one of the many highlights: Piero di Cosimo’s portraits of the architect Giuliano da Sangallo and his father Francesco Giamberti, made around 1482–85.
