Description

Frieze Academy in Singapore presents 'Public vs. Private Museums: Bridging the Divide?'


What is the difference between ‘public’ and ‘private’ in the 21st-century museum landscape?

Bringing together international museum professionals from across the sectors, this panel discussion will have a particular focus on the burgeoning of private museums and foundations across Southeast Asia. What roles do such spaces occupy in regions where public art infrastructure is limited or contested? How do – or should – their programmes and responsibilities diverge from or overlap with those that are state-funded? The panel will also consider the many ways in which public institutions internationally are engaging with private organisations, and emerging forms of collaboration between the sectors.

This is the second of a three-part event series organised by Frieze, in partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board, which sees international creatives come together to exchange insights on contemporary art in Southeast Asia.
