Apologia of Art: The role of a curator at the Museo del Prado


WHEN November 12, 2015
5-6 PM WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

This talk will take place in seminar room 004, Conference Center (A6). 

This talk centers on the experience of managing a leading collection of Western art. This includes planning its installation, organizing exhibitions, remaining active in the academic fields that are relevant to the collections, coordinating and overseeing the restoration of paintings, and public relations. A passionate engagement with art is the key ingredient to carry out the two main goals of a curator: to preserve works of art and to enhance the experience of contemplating them.
