The Association of Art Museum Curators Foundation has opened registration for In-Conversation: Multiple Voices to Build Inclusion, the seventh in its regional programming series. The discussion will feature leading voices in Seattle's cultural community for an active conversation on developing inclusive exhibitions.
Throughout the arts, multiple stakeholders are working towards addressing inclusion within our exhibitions, collections, and overall work. Advancing the conversation takes a community, one that goes beyond curator-to-curator conversations. Increasingly museums are seeing the benefits of including others in the planning process—not only colleagues within museums but audiences, artists, supporters, students, leaders, and collectors. During this roundtable discussion, speakers will look into examples of how bringing varying perspectives together is working to change arts organizations and the programs they offer.
Moderated by Chiyo Ishikawa, Susan Brotman Deputy Director for Art, Curator of European Painting & Sculpture, Seattle Art Museum, the discussion will feature Ping Foong, Foster Foundation Curator of Chinese Art, Seattle Art Museum; Rodney Hines, Director of Social Impact for U.S. Operations, Starbucks; Elisheba Johnson, Project Manager of Public Art, City of Seattle; Tracy Rector, Indigenous Media Activist, Filmmaker and Curator; S. Surface, Curator, Designer, and Lecturer; Xiaojin Wu, Curator of Japanese and Korean Art, Seattle Art Museum; and Emily Zimmerman, Director, Jacob Lawrence Gallery.
Organized by the AAMC Foundation, the event is open to AAMC members, guests, and students. Pre-registration is required, please register to secure your space.
