The Future of Museums – Maria Balshaw gives the 2022 Slade lecture series 1 Feb 2022

Tate Director and NMDC Chair Maria Balshaw will be giving a series of lectures on ‘The Future of Museums’ over February and March, as visiting Slade Professor at the University of Cambridge. Museums have been vital connectors through the pandemic, but at the same time there has been fundamental debate and dissent over what they are for, who they speak to and the histories, objects and ideas they are tasked with holding – all taking place within a public sphere that is more disputatious than ever before. Individual topics across the seven lectures include the (de)Growth model, the 100 year future and collecting in the here and now. The series will be in person with simultaneous live broadcasts, and recordings available afterwards. Tickets are free for the in person event, or watch the livestream without booking.
