Online Talk | Corinne Erni and Andras Szanto on The Future of the Museum

A conversation from February 2021

January 28, 6 pm - 7 pm

Online only

Almost exactly a year ago, Senior Curator Corinne Erni talked with museum strategist and author András Szántó about his book, The Future of the Museum: 28 Dialogues. Listen to their conversation where they addressed questions that are still relevant to museums today—how they adapt to new realities and what some of the most exciting approaches are. Szántó is currently working on a follow up book on the future of museums in conversation with architects, including Herzog & de Meuron who designed the Parrish.

How do museums adapt to new realities around the world today? What are some of the most exciting approaches? As museums worldwide shuttered in 2020 because of the coronavirus, Szántó conducted a series of interviews with an international group of museum leaders. In a moment when economic, political, and cultural shifts are signaling the start of a new era, the directors speak candidly about the historical limitations and untapped potential of art museums. Each of the 28 conversations in the book explores a particular topic of relevance to art institutions today and tomorrow. What emerges from the in-depth conversations is a composite portrait of a generation of museum leaders working to make institutions more open, democratic, inclusive, experimental and experiential, technologically savvy, culturally polyphonic, attuned to the needs of their visitors and communities, and concerned with addressing the defining issues of the societies around them. The dialogues offer glimpses of how museums around the globe are undergoing an accelerated phase of reappraisal and reinvention.
