Hosted by Wu Weishan, the secretary of the BRICS Alliance of Art Museums and Galleries and director of the National Art Museum of China, the exchanges centered around the emerging challenges that museums have confronted with these past few years, such as temporary shutdowns and a sharp decrease in entrance numbers, and how museums have utilized digital means to reach out to the communities, contributing to urban development and cultural diversity.

The BRICS alliance, established in 2018 in Beijing, forges a spirit of openness, inclusiveness and cooperation.
