Talk

WHEN February 21, 2019
6:30-8pm WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center Part of "Science, Heritage and The Past" WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

The primary duty of a museum is to preserve heritage features of outstanding universal value for future generations. Preserving implies studying, understanding, and implementing conservation, but also communicating and engaging with the public in as many levels as possible. The connections and entangled relations between modern life and ancient artefacts move beyond the mutually exclusive differences, and often invisible links are involved. The duty of a museum is to make these links visible, communicating the value of its collections, and thus creating a sustainable cultural landscape. This talk delves into the scope of how to create a sustainable cultural landscape with consideration to preservation.
