6/24: Brain Candy: A Virtual Salon Series – The Curators –

Inspired by the French salons of the early 18th century, Brain Candy is a contemporary take on this Enlightenment-era institution which provided a safe place for women and men to congregate for intellectual discourse. Join some of the region’s most dynamic curators as they gather virtually to discuss their approach to the curatorial craft, how they are addressing the new limitations of the pandemic, and how storytelling will be more important than ever as we consider exhibitions in the future.

Featured speakers:
