免費入場,需要預先登記。

I will be thrilled to share with the Hong Kong audience and specifically the students my professional experience in the world of museums and their new global strategies starting with my seven-year term as Head of International Projects at the Pompidou in Paris. I was tasked with conceiving and implementing the global strategy of the institution and that included drafting a roadmap of the key countries and metropolises in the fast-moving global art and culture scene. I will want to share the experience of partnering with a leading Saudi company on the first-ever contemporary art exhibition in the kingdom and how it has heralded the opening of their gigantic cultural centre. The Gulf is obviously one of those new cultural hubs and the building of national art institutions is a crucial component of the nation-building and branding in that region. I have recently been involved in projects with the Qatar museum authority as well as the Louvre Abu Dhabi and will share insights into those strategies.

More recently, I have been overseeing a private museum under construction in a large-scale urban development project in Asia. The mix of entertainment, real estate, retail and corporate branding in those projects which look up to the Louis Vuitton Foundation is a major feature of museum projects in Asia. The major Chinese cities (Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen ...) all have extremely ambitious projects which I will want to highlight. And now beyond China, new museums are part of the privately funded strategies in countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines or Morocco and South Africa.
