The Art Newspaper Live: Funding Matters

A virtual discussion with museum directors answering the question: How can museums recover after Covid-19? Senior editor Margaret Carrigan of The Art Newspaper speaks with institutional leaders, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev of the Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Tristram Hunt of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Zoé Whitley of the Chisenhale Gallery in London, and Sally Tallant of the Queens Museum in New York, about the impact of the pandemic on museums.

Against the backdrop of an already challenging funding landscape, art institutions now face steep revenue shortfalls due to extended closures and a decline in giving from governments and private donors. With a clear need for technological investment, the pressure to cultivate the next generation of philanthropists and growing expectations from younger audiences, museums must find new ways to move forward.
