After Louvre Abu Dhabi: Can we Dream a Different Dream of Cultural Exchange Lecture by Dr. Michael Conforti

In this talk, Dr. Michael Conforti will address the case of the recently opened Louvre Abu Dhabi. Taking this example of asset exchange in the cultural sphere, Dr. Conforti will reflect on the possibilities of future models of global partnerships. Could the international museum community ever consider exchange initiatives that update the utopian ideals on which museums were founded - art collections formed for public experience and education - doing so for audiences far as well as near with money being one but not the only catalyst for exchange?

Dr. Michael Conforti, Director Emeritus of the Clark Art Institute, a museum and research center in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
