Lafranchi looks at museums and their effects on the production of art and sees a prison, unchanged in over two hundred years, where critical ideas have been locked away by generations of directors, curators, and scholars, jealously guarding a canonized version of the evolution of art. In Prisoners of Museum, Lafranchi offers an up-to-date critique on the role of the museums in contemporary culture.
