Frieze Academy Series  Public vs. Private Museums: Bridging the Divide?
Frieze Academy makes its debut during Singapore Art Week 2019. This is the second of three events organised by Frieze, in partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board, which see local and international creatives come together to exchange insights on contemporary art in Southeast Asia.

What is the difference between ‘public’ and ‘private’ in the 21st-century museum landscape? What roles do private organizations occupy in regions where public art infrastructure is limited or contested? How do – or should – their programmes and responsibilities diverge from or overlap with those that are state-funded?

Bringing together international museum professionals from across the sectors, this panel discussion will focus on the burgeoning of private museums and foundations across Southeast Asia. It will also consider the many ways in which public institutions internationally are engaging with private organizations, and emerging forms of collaboration between the sectors.

As part of the Frieze Academy series, local and international curators will also participate in four closed-door roundtable sessions on 23-24 January, hosted in collaboration with partner Singapore institutions on issues of contemporary curating in an international context.
