Cross-City Arts Partnerships: Challenges, Models & Impacts to Amplify New Voices
Thursday February 28, 6-8pm (with reception to follow)
Boston Public Library’s Central Library in Copley Square, Johnson Building, Rabb Hall
The Curatorial Network Accelerator BOSTON (CNAB) welcomes all to this free public conversation. The CNAB Team will convene speakers from Boston and beyond to share case studies of partnerships that have amplified the voice and visibility of curators working to reframe the cultural canon. The focus is on effective models toward change. The event will allow Boston-area curators, artists, students, funders, and all interested in the arts to engage in important questions, including: What are challenges in cross-city arts partnerships in connecting across differences in mission, audience, budget and scale? What arts partnership models have resulted in program innovations? What broader cultural/social impacts can collaborative curatorial projects have--new programming practices? structural shifts? cultural equity? With an introduction, moderated discussion and audience Q&A by Jen Mergel of CNAB, these panelists will share their experiences on cross-city collaboration:
Terry Marshall on his work in Boston and New York with Intelligent Mischief and more.
David Leonard, President of the Boston Public Library, on BPL cultural collaborations from the central and neighborhood branches, including with the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, independent artists, and more.
Jasmine Wahi (aka @browngirlcurator) on her work in Newark with Project for Empty Space.
