Sentence Elimination- Museums

  1. Museums are not neutral spaces, where objects exist without context; they do more than allow us to engage with history and art.
  2. They are forms in and of themselves, which, to varying degrees, enable and propagate missions and legacies through design and architecture.
  3. Try as some museums might to go unnoticed as simply the pedestal or wall on which history and art work hangs, there is no escaping the weight of the objects and stories told within their architecture.
  4. A museum of modern art in Cologne isn’t so different from a museum of modern art in Chicago – you see the same major-canon artists, arranged in more or less the same way.

 

  • Correct Answer
    Choice D

Detailed Solution



Sentence A posits that museums are not 'neutral spaces' that house objects without context. Sentence B expands on this idea, stating that museums propagate missions and legacies 'through design and architecture'. The point that these statements make is that the form of the museum--its design and architecture-- matters as much as the objects in it, for this adds context to the objects showcased in the space. Sentence C reiterates this, stating that 'there is no escaping the weight of the objects and stories told within their architecture'. ABC makes a cogent paragraph.

Sentence D states a diametrically opposite view to the one in the other sentences, declaring that one museum isn't so different from another, as it displays 'the same major-canon artists, arranged in more or less the same way'. This is hence the odd one out.

Correct Answer: Choice (D)
