Postgraduate Diploma in Asian Art - SOAS announces next Online Expert Panel Discussion
This event is free and open for all to attend.

LONDON.- This year has seen tremendous shifts in the Asian art world. This panel brings together leading specialists from across the world to explore pressing questions at this unique historical moment. What are the opportunities and challenges facing museum curators? What are the new trends in the South Asian art market? How has covid-19 impacted both museums and the market for South Asian Art? How are online interactions changing the ways we curate and share museum collections? The panellists will discuss their current projects and how they are responding to the technological and cultural changes of 2020.
