In the face of a still-uncertain set of known and unknown challenges, with possible draconian risks and new opportunities to change what was thought traditionally as necessary and bring progress into our a future possibilities, AAMC Foundation, an organization focused on supporting visual arts curators in the nonprofit sector, has created “Envisioning a Future, Seizing the Now” on Thursday, May 21st gathering leading voices within the US visual art sector. The conversation will investigate core themes focusing on the big picture issues for our community, reflecting on our current situations and moving forward into the near and far future.
Moderated by Paula Gangopadhyay, Deputy Director of Museum Services, Institute of Museum and Library Services, panelists include Maureen Bray, Executive Director, Art Dealers Association of America; Lauren Shadford, Executive Director, Voices in Contemporary Art; Emil J. Kang, Program Director, Arts and Cultural Heritage, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; and Pauline Willis, Director, American Federation for the Arts.
