Miami Art Basel Talk / Museums Go Global

Miami Art Basel Talk / Museums Go Global by Art Basel

Expanding the collecting and exhibiting mandates of many leading western museums is accompanied by a host of unanswered questions: What aspects of global art culture should these institutions embrace? How should museums modify their approaches to collecting, programming, and educating? What institutional models should they adopt? And how are artists and institutions in other parts of the world responding to the intensified regional presence of western institutions? Drawing on recent experiences with global initiatives and collaborations, this panel of leading curators and museum directors will explore the benefits and pitfalls of museums going global.

In conversation – Patrick Charpenel, Director of Fundación Jumex, Mexico City; Chris Dercon, Director of Tate Modern, London; Chus Martinez, Chief Curator at El Museo del Barrio, New York; Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator, Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York with Moderator András Szántó, Author and Consultant to arts and philanthropic organizations, New York
