Marina Loshak, the director of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, will be moderating the round table discussion “Museums and Social Inclusion: A Global Experience” as part of the forum. Rebecca McGinnis (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), Barry Ginley (Victoria and Albert Museum, London), Cathelijne Van den Berg-Denekamp (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), Elena Minarelli (The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice), Molly Bretton (Royal Academy of Arts, London), Evgenia Kiseleva (Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow), Larisa Shostak (The State Hermitage, Saint Petersburg), Olga Morozova (Mouseion Children’s Educational Center of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow), Aleksandr Sorokin (Federal Resource Center for Organization of Comprehensive Support for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education) and Vlad Kolesnikov (Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow) will take part in the discussion.

19:00. The documentary film “Imagine” (2017) by Katerina Gordeeva and Nikolai Kovalkov
The movie is based on experiences from the exhibition “See the Invisible” that was organized at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts for the visually impaired. The exhibition project, sponsored by PAO Sberbank, was open from November 2016 until February 2017 and then traveled around Russia: citizens in Voronezh, Omsk, Volgograd, Kazan, Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk had the unique opportunity to experience a tactile version of famous paintings. The movie will be presented by Olga Morozova, curator of the “See the Invisible” exhibition, and Elena Konurina, a PAO Sberbank associate.

Speakers from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts will participate in a program at the 6th Saint Petersburg International Cultural Forum to discuss the problems of accessibility of modern museums for visitors with special needs. The “Accessible Museum” project was launched at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in 2016 in order to expand the accessibility options and create a friendly environment for visitors with a spectrum of special needs.

In addition, our IT Deputy Director Vladimir Opredelyonov will lead the intellectual marathon “All Power to Museums?!” (November 16, 8:00 p.m.–11:50 p.m.) and will present a report at another round table section: “The Project to Create an Updated International Convention on Digital Copying of Art Objects and Cultural Artifacts and Its Relevance for Museums” on November 17 from 10:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

Where: State Hermitage, General Staff Building (Saint Petersburg, 6/8 Dvortsovaya Pl.)
