The word “curate” has permeated popular culture, and is today informed by artists, dealers, and other professionals participating in this practice. Inspired by The Boomer List, this panel looks at multiple generational viewpoints of exhibition curation. Panelists include: Sharon Arnold, Bridge Productions; Nina Bozicnik, Henry Art Gallery; Vicki Halper, independent curator; and discussion moderated by Negarra A. Kudumu, Manager of Public Programs at the Frye Art Museum. More info here. Tickets here.
