Parenthèse (musée) : Du Louvre-Lens au National Museum of Scotland

Wednesday 27 April 2016 18:00-19:30


Edinburgh may be new to Xavier Dectot but not the world of museums. Former director of the Louvre-Lens museum in the North of France, he has recently been appointed head of the new Art and Design department of the National Museum of Scotland. Other new galleries are due to open next Summer including collections of fashion, science and technology.

Joining the museum at a key moment, Xavier Dectot will discuss the opening of the new galleries and the redevelopment strategy. A fascinating talk on cultural policies and its challenges.

Talk in French by Xavier Dectot
90 mins (incl. Q&A)
ADMISSION FREE
