Telling Global Stories

How does globalization inform the way that museums present art and history? A panel of professionals from museums that have undertaken innovative displays in response to new ideas on “globalized” art history will address the opportunities and pitfalls of reinstalling collections that reflect this theme. Through dialogue with the audience, panelists will guide a conversation about how the Walters might use its displays to reflect a broader cultural context.

Before the talk, we'd like your thoughts and questions on the topic. Tag your responses with #TellingGlobalStories on social media and follow the conversation. We will also live tweet the talk so follow us on Twitter
