We met up with Beatrice Leanza, Director of the Lisbon Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, to hear about her vision for a public institution. Leanza tells us, “The Carsten Höller exhibition opens to the public on 5 October, on the museum’s fifth anniversary. To celebrate, we’re planning a whole day – from 11 am to 9 pm – of theatre, music, performances and an alternative producers’ market, so people can spend the entire day at the museum. Things are going to be pretty busy on the 5th, I can tell you.” The Italian critic and curator, who has a background in contemporary art and lived in China for many years, became the Director of MAAT in September 2019. Within the first few months of her tenure, she radically changed the DNA of an institution that aspires to be a benchmark not just for the city but internationally.
