Join Shwetal at Communicating the Museum 17, in LA, to discover how museums of the 21st century are radically changing.

The theme of Communicating the Museum’s 19th edition is “Museums Beyond Walls”. From 6 – 9 November 2017, 300 culture professionals debated the changing role of museums in our society.

Shwetal will be presenting a keynote on 'What is the Museum of the Future?' along with Ben Rawlingson-Plant of Brunswick Arts Consulting.

Shwetal A. Patel (b. 1979, India) studied social sciences at Queen Mary University of London whilst experimenting in the fields of music, fashion, art and film in the thriving artistic scene of nineteen nineties East London. Moving his base to Florence, Italy, Patel was invited to Mumbai in 2010 to help strategically develop India’s first contemporary art biennial; a non-profit initiative conceived and led by artists.

Since launching in 2012, the Kochi-Muziris Biennale has become a widely attended and influential contemporary art platform in Asia.

Since 2015, Patel has operated as an independent arts consultant and is currently undertaking PhD research at the Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton). He regularly contributes to journals and magazines and has lectured and presented at museums, universities and biennials internationally.
