Envisioning Curatorial Practice carries on the Williams College legacy of supporting and developing leaders in the arts. It’s an ongoing series featuring innovators in the curatorial field. The annual lecture examines field-wide shifts by bringing curatorial innovators working in a range of forms and at a range of institutions to the Williams campus to share their perspectives and meet with students
