How do museums fit into the calls for social change that echo around the globe today? Learn about some exciting approaches to inventing and reinventing the museum with two back-to-back conversations in conjunction with the U.S. publication of museum strategist András Szántó’s book The Future of the Museum: 28 Dialogues. First, Szántó discusses new global models with Sandra Jackson-Dumont, director of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Los Angeles, and Marie-Cécile Zinsou, President and Founder of Benin’s Zinsou Foundation, who offer surprising and original answers to what a museum can be. Then, get an inside look into how museums are reshaping their institutions as Brooklyn Museum director Anne Pasternak speaks with museum directors Victoria Noorthoorn of the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Franklin Sirmans of the Pérez Art Museum Miami.
