Re-examining International Exchange:
The Future of a Global Art Community
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown into sharp relief the internationalism upon which contemporary museology is premised. Yet given the current situation, such as with travel restrictions, doubts have surfaced about the sustainability of this premise and its practices (to say nothing of its impact on the climate crisis); this is coupled with the rising perspectivethat museums should focus on local communities and their collections.
How then should museum professionals, curators, artists, and cultural workers approach and rethink the relationship between institutions, locals, and the world?
Are there ways we can re-think what the international can mean? Will we witness—or even bring about—an entrammelled internationalism, or can we conceive of new modes of exchange and collaboration that is both more sustainable, and more inclusive?
How can we support new generations of practitioners to ensure that we do not lose the sense of a global art community?
