Curator Talk: Remembering Contemporary Art



What will contemporary art say about our time when it has become historical? Will this be known as an era of “posts-” (-feminist, -modernist, -colonialist, etc.)? Today’s art remains a loose category, but the work it encompasses responds to the very real facts of our world—including war, global shifts in power, and the explosion of social media. Join chief curator Darsie Alexander for a conversation about ways that artists have engaged with (or suppressed) events and developments in contemporary life and why it’s so important to their art.
