Curating a New Hub for University Life

In this richly illustrated presentation and discussion, Museum director James Steward will present and describe the designs for the new Art Museum facility and discuss some of the challenges of curating and presenting globe-spanning collections in the twenty-first century. He will draw on innovative work done in a variety of museum settings around the world, as well as aspects of the early history of museums, to outline exciting opportunities to shape approaches that build on histories of collecting, involve new commitments to inclusion and transparency, and position visual experience at the heart of University life.
