The Middle East Institute (MEI) and The Beirut Museum of Art (BeMA) are pleased to invite you to a panel conversation on the changing social and cultural significance of museums in Lebanon, and more broadly in the Middle East, as they seek to move beyond their traditional role as authorities in the arts to become more relevant to the cultural and socio-economic concerns of communities at a local, regional, and international level.
Please join Glenn Lowry, director of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Taline Boladian, member of APEAL,The Association for the Promotion and Exhibition of the Arts in Lebanon (founding entity of BeMA), and Peggy Loar, president of International Museum Planning Consultants, for a discussion about the future of museums in the Middle East. NPR Art Desk Reporter Neda Ulaby will moderate the conversation.
