Another in Abu Dhabi Festival’s ongoing discussion series of “insightful dialogue between thought leaders, diplomats, cultural leaders and the general public”. Dr Borja-Villel is a respected authority on modern and contemporary art and also counts as one of the most influential museum directors of our time; he was the first director of the Antoni Tàpies Foundation in Barcelona from its opening in 1990 until July 1998, then had a reputation-building ten-year stint as director of the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) from 1998 to January 2008. He has been director of Madrid’s Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS) since January 2008.
