Guggenheim Museum and Interim Director, Curatorial Affairs, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi; and Troy Conrad Therrien, Curator, Architecture and Digital Initiatives, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, these vital conversations will invite innovative, forward-thinking solutions to prescient questions: What are the influences shaping the next generation of global art museums? How can museums activate the past in the present? How can museums creatively embrace the “Digital Age”? How can museums, institutions fostering global citizenship, thoughtfully engage diversity that arises from new art histories while also honoring the legacy of the past?
