Manuel Rabaté, Kamini Sawhney
This episode of MAP’s series Director’s Cut features Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi.
The Louvre Abu Dhabi is a new landmark to grace the art scene of the United Arab Emirates, and Rabaté has headed the institution in the position of Director since its inception in 2016. Built on Saadiyat Island, the institution boasts cutting edge architecture and design, with its structures forming a man-made art peninsula showcasing collections from around Europe and the Middle East. Championing universality, Rabaté’s mandate focuses on training the next generation of Emirati museum professionals and leaders and to reframe Abu Dhabi as a cultural centre for global audiences.
The Director’s Cut series, anchored by Kamini Sawhney, MAP’s director, offers a glimpse into how the institution of the museum is being reimagined and reinvented today and presents a unique opportunity to hear from reputed practitioners in museums around the world as they reflect on their institutional experiences, behind-the-scenes challenges, unique initiatives, and more.
