What Might a Museum of Non-Human Culture Look Like? Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Director of the Castello di Rivoli, Wants to Show Us
When Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, the director of Castello di Rivoli in Turin, sat down for an interview with Artnet News recently in the museum cafe, a colleague placed fresh glasses of a specially made cocktail on the table. It is called Aperitivo del Direttore (The Director’s Aperitif), a drink Christov-Bakargiev invented that contains Bergamotto liqueur, prosecco and fresh basil leaves—a more bitter rendition of an Aperol Spritz. Taking a sip of the beverage, the museum leader laid out her similarly unique aspirations for the future of art museums.
