Museum Macan: Art for all

By Aaron Seeto - Director, Museum Macan

A private museum providing public access to a significant collection, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara,
established in November 2017, focuses on education and stimulating art appreciation through popular, thought-provoking public
exhibitions and programs. While the museum's economic sustainability is important, the broader sustainability of its audiences
and programs is inseparable from the economic question. Contemporary Asian art authority and Museum Director Aaron Seeto will look at the broader role a private museum can play in stimulating greater public engagement with the arts. Videos of some intriguing recent exhibitions will be on display before the lecture.
