Manuel and Manuel. The relay is complete. Manuel Segade, 46, replaces Manolo Borja-Ville, 65, as director of the Reina Sofia Museum. The international competition marked a difficult and controversial transition that was delayed longer than expected. Half a year after Borja-Vileli’s contract expired, the past came to an end this Monday. And the sector seems happy about the future. Various agents of the field table consulted by this newspaper describe the center’s new director as an expert “dialogue” and connoisseur of current Spanish art. And what seems very relevant, Segade is a manager from the periphery who participated in the social structure of Móstoles (Madrid), under the leadership of the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo community in Madrid.
