Museums Now: Relevance & Representation

Museums Now: Relevance & Representation is the next edition of ArtViews, a series of panel discussions that address critical issues in the museum world. In this panel we will explore how museums can evolve and thrive despite changing social contexts and art historical practices. How they have modified their missions, practices, and collections to be more inclusive and satisfy a more diverse and interconnected society. Additionally, panelists will discuss how museums have had to re-examine their economic strategies in order to survive periods of economic fluctuation and decreased public funding.

Panelists:
Tom Finkelpearl, Commissioner, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs
Rujeko Hockley, Assistant Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art
Belinda Tate, Executive Director, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts
Hrag Vartanian, Editor-In-Chief and Co-Founder, Hyperallergic
Daniel H. Weiss, President and CEO, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
 

Moderator:
Arnold Lehman, Senior Advisor, Phillips and former Director of the Brooklyn Museum
