This week, we look at museums in different parts of the globe: what’s their future in a world changed by the coronavirus?
The doors of museums have slammed shut over recent weeks as Covid-19 has locked down countries across the world. So this week, we’re asking key figures in museums in the UK, the US and China: what happens next? We speak to Frances Morris, the director of Tate Modern, to Dan Weiss, the president and chief executive officer of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and to Philip Tinari, the director of the UCCA Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing—leaders within different museum cultures, with different challenges ahead.
We also have the latest in our Lonely Works series, in which the Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger explores Jackson Pollock’s Autumn Rhythm (Number 30), in the Met.
