Lunchtime Forum

The COVID-19 pandemic and new, Black Lives Matter-led, civil rights movement have forced many museums and other cultural institutions to rethink how, and for whom, they curate and produce content. What does it mean when museums can no longer permit visitors within their walls? How do these institutions adapt to meet the moment, and what is that outcome? And who is leading the groundswell of outdoor and immersive "exhibits" that are expanding where and for whom museums operate? We'll talk with the leaders of a brand new wave of institutions that are delivering innovative and immersive cultural experiences beyond the walls of museums and movie theaters.
