Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Mar 11, 2019
suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Jehra Patrick, Curator and Gallery Director for Macalester’s Law Warschaw Gallery, will present “Curating Demystified."  In an era of when “curating” can mean anything from making a playlist to organizing a wine menu, the labor of curatorial work, in relation to the arts, is often misunderstood. So, what does a curator do, exactly? In this fast-paced talk, Patrick will share a brief history of the curator and how this role has expanded, dispelling common myths while sharing her philosophy for producing exhibitions, working with artists and publics, and collecting artwork, on campus and beyond. All faculty are welcome. Lunch will be provided.
