Asia Society's two-day Arts & Museum Summit kicked off earlier today in Hong Kong with a panel discussion featuring some of the biggest names in the museum world. Leading museum professionals — including Caroline Collier, director at Tate National in London; Glenn D. Lowry, director of The Museum of Modern Art in New York; Lars Nittve, executive director of M+ in Hong Kong; Wang Chunchen, head of curatorial research at CAFA Art Museum in Beijing; and our own Melissa Chiu, director of Asia Society Museum — envisioned the museum of the future in a lively discussion entitled "Making a Museum in the 21st Century."

The summit, which brings together museum leaders from across Asia, Europe, and North America, continues on Friday with a keynote address by Lowry, followed by talks and panels on the following topics: "Museums of the Future: An Artist’s Perspective," "The Museum in the World," "The Museum in the City," and "Inside the Museum: Future Propositions." You can learn more about the summit here or download the summit program here. Expect more coverage, including photos and videos, in the coming days.
