Agnotology: Jordan Stein

Mini Course | Curator Jordan Stein explores the study of ignorance in a reflection on memory, loss, and all that eludes us.

Jordan Stein is a curator based in San Francisco. Preoccupied with an animation of the archival and overlooked, his practice aims to link past and present through the varied presentation of critical artworks, histories, and ideas. He has worked in an array of institutions and scales, including Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Artists Space (New York), Matthew Marks Gallery (New York), the Renaissance Society (Chicago), Fraenkel Gallery (San Francisco), and San Francisco City Hall. He is a co-founder of the interdisciplinary collaborative group Will Brown, which realized more than three dozen exhibitions and programs in their Mission District storefront from 2012–2015 before working parasitically with other organizations. He founded Cushion Works, a just-in-time gallery on the second floor of an active cushion making workshop, in 2017. With Will Brown, he is the author of Bruce Conner: Brass Handles, and with Jason Fulford is the editor of Where to Score, a collection of hippie-era classified advertisements.

The program begins at 5:30 p.m. at Thompson Memorial Chapel on Main Street on the Williams College campus. A reception will follow at 6:30 p.m. at WCMA Summer Space at 76 Spring St.
