However, both the Aitken project and the temporary dome demonstrate Koshalek’s enthusiasm for turning the Hirshhorn back into a dynamic art space. Quoted in the Washington Post, the director — who was appointed to the head position one short year ago — explains, “We want to turn the symbolic center of the Hirshhorn into a center for international dialogue. The issues are going to be very broad, so we can attract a pluralistic audience. It’s also going to be based on very strong partnerships and collaborative efforts.”
