Hi, MCAD community,
This year the four McKnight Visual Artist Discussions will be taking place at Mia in their Pillsbury Auditorium. The 2016 McKnight fellows will be talking about their work with nationally-renown art curators and writers on four different dates, each starting at 6:30 p.m. and lasting approximately 1-1/2 hours:
McKnight Visual Artist Discussion Series Schedule
- Friday, February 16, 2018: Christian Viveros-Fauné, independent critic and curator, in conversation with Leah Edelman-Brier and Monica Haller (pictured)
- Friday, March 23, 2018: Andria Hickey, curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, in conversation with Pao Houa Her and Caroline Kent
- Friday, April 6, 2018: Jamillah James, curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in conversation with Tia-Simone Gardner and Jay Heikes
- Friday, June 1, 2018: Hrag Vartanian, critic, curator, editor and co-founder of Hyperallergic, in conversation with Erik Benson and Julie Buffalohead
Four of the eight 2016 McKnight fellows are MCAD alums--Monica Haller, Pao Houa Her, Erik Benson, and Julie Buffalohead--and one is currently adjunct faculty--Jay Heikes. The conversations should be lively and insightful and I would encourage you to attend them if you can.
The series is free and open to the public but you will have to register. Mia is finalizing that ticketing today.
See attached for pdf of this announcement. Officials posters will be coming soon!
Thanks for your support,
