Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Kamini Sawhney
This episode of MAP’s series Director’s Cut features Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Director General of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) in Mumbai, in conversation with the Director of MAP, Kamini Sawhney.
Under Mukherjee’s leadership from 2007, CSMVS has undergone extensive modernisation, including refurbishment of the Museum’s main building and the establishment of a conservation centre, a new Children’s Museum, an institutional archive, new galleries and educational initiatives. In 2010, in recognition of his initiatives, UNESCO awarded the Museum the 2010 Asia-Pacific Heritage Award for Cultural Heritage Conservation.
The Director’s Cut series 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.
