Art Basel Conversations | Miami Beach | What is the Role of Museums in the Age of Political Polarization?

Throughout the world, museums are confronting a new, polarized political landscape. The forces of nationalism, nativism, and anti-globalism are on the rise, challenging many of the assumptions of inclusivity on which museums have been built. So how should museums navigate this new landscape? Should they openly engage in contemporary politics, thereby risking the prospect of having to take sides and being pulled into contentious debates, or should they offer a refuge from ideology and social conflict, which could leave them appearing aloof and disengaged? What are the roles and responsibilities of art institutions during a time like this?

Franklin Sirmans, Director, Pérez Art Museum, Miami; Kaywin Feldman, Nivin and Duncan MacMillan Director and President, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minneapolis; Amy Sadao, Daniel W. Dietrich II Director, Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia; Moderated by András Szántó.

Although usually modest in size, such museums often steward the legacies of famed national icons, being frequently among the leading tourist attractions in their cities. Directors from some of the world's leading museums in this category assessed the legacy and debate the future of the single-artist museums.

Art Basel Conversations | Public/Private | What can a Biennial do?

In recent decades, biennials have proliferated as the art world has scaled in size and global reach. They provide a point of convergence for the art world, expose large audiences to art and catalyze interest in cities and regions with global aspirations. But along with the popularity of biennials also come questions and concerns: How can such enormous events achieve impact and propose a strong curatorial point of view? How can the art world avoid biennial-fatigue? Can biennials provide an alternative viewpoint from the marketplace? What exactly should be the proper relationship between biennials and collectors? What sort of curatorial, institutional or technological innovations can help ensure the vibrancy and relevance of art biennials going forward?
