Description
This paper was presented in 2007 InSEA Asian Regional Congress in the

session of Community-based Art Education as a keynote address.
Abstract
Art museums today have the opportunity to push the traditional

museum paradigm to enable a broader approach to postmodern society. Since

diverse visual images permeate through this society, traditional art museum

communication approaches are no longer suitable. Artworks displayed in art

museums not only suggest a single meaning, but produce multiple meanings

in communicating with the public. The function of the art museum as a

communicator demands new ways of thinking about issues of knowledge,

power, identity, and language. This paper investigates communication

methods and processes in art museums. Visitors in art museums are

examined by focusing on the learning process. The conversation between

visitors and art museums is discussed in order to understand how the

meanings of artworks in art museums are constructed. Additionally, this

study investigated the processes and aspects of diverse media that can be used

in the exhibition spaces in art museums.
