Envisioning Curatorial Practice
Cesar Garcia, Founding Director and Chief Curator of The Mistake Room in Los Angeles
Monday, Apr 20, 2015
Co-presented by WCMA and the Graduate Program

Garcia’s talk will survey experimental models of artistic and cultural production—artist-run spaces, publishing houses, and alternative academies—stemming from Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia over the last decade and consider how they might inform institution-making in the United States.
