THAI ART ARCHIVES is delighted to announce our innomination by ASIA SOCIETY, New York, to officially participate in the inaugural Arts & Museum Summit in Hong Kong from 21-22 November 2013. The SUMMIT grows out of recent research by Asia Society into timely themes facing museums all over the globe in the early 21st century, and it seeks to strengthen greater collaborative synergies between a wide network of museums and related institutions from Asia, Europe, and the United States. Featuring a distinguished panel of global museum professionals, the intensive, two-day seminar seeks to address topics such as "What should museums of the twenty-first century look like? How should they display art and engage viewers? Is there a "disruption" to the current thinking that should be addressed? There is no doubt that the most museum growth in the next few decades will be in Asia. Bringing together museum leaders from across Asia, Europe, and North America, the Arts & Museum Summit explores the challenges and opportunities in the cultural sector today; the developing museum ecology in Asia; and the opportunities for professional development and partnerships among museums."
