Great museums in the pandemic age: challenges and survival strategies
How are the world’s great museums surviving in the age of Covid-19? What strategies have they had to implement? How has the pandemic affected one of England’s most important art collections? How does the virtual experience compare to the in-person contemplation of an original piece of art? These are just some of the questions to be explored in Dr. Claudia Campaña’s interview with Dr. Gabriele Finaldi, current director of the National Gallery, London. Previously the Deputy Director for Collections and Research at the Prado museum in Madrid, Finaldi is one of the pre-eminent figures in the current international museum scene, and his decisions influence opinions, policies and actions far beyond the National Gallery. Naturally, they also stimulate important conversations like this one.
