Museums have been under fire since pre-pandemic. Practices are being examined, relationships are being questioned and leaderships have faltered. If museums are the custodians of history, how do we redefine them in the 21st century? Institutional leaders discuss their audiences; the pros and cons of de-acquisitioning; the necessity of finance and expansions; sustainability; changes in leadership, management, and collection; censoring exhibitions; repatriation, and more.
