The Future of the Museum

INCLUDES CONTRIBUTION BY THOMAS P. CAMPBELL, DIRECTOR OF THE FINE ARTS MUSEUMS OF SAN FRANCISCO

The world’s leading museum directors discuss the future of museums in the wake of 2020’s pandemic and social upheavals. The year ushered in a new decade and with it a series of unforeseen events that have reoriented the future. As the coronavirus forced businesses and institutions to close all over the world, museums likewise shuttered. New York–based cultural strategist András Szántó took this abrupt halt of art-world activity as an opportunity to interview 28 of the world’s leading museum directors. Here, each director addresses the potential of art museums as both spaces for change and democracy, and as reflections of larger sociopolitical dilemmas, offering a glimpse into the many possible futures of museums in an accelerated phase of reappraisal and reinvention. Paperback, 320 pages.
