How do gallery educators and curators try to access the imagination? What is the current cultural value of the imagination? Can museums of the future be made into spaces for the imagination? Contributors include: Lindsay Clarke, Gavin Jantjes, Richard Kearney, Clare van Loenen, Idit Nathan. A PDF of the Editorial is attached.
