Cultural critics, theorists, and other experts in dialogue with practicing artists, the Museum’s talks and panels explore the work of visual artists of African and Latino descent through conversation, performance, and dynamic response.
Artists on Artists
Artists on Artists invites creatives from all backgrounds—including poets, musicians, performers, and dancers—to respond to works on view through the lens of their own practices and experiences. This experimental, in-gallery program promotes dynamic engagement with contemporary art and artists.
This ongoing conversation series provides a platform for interdisciplinary dialogue, in which artists and curators are joined by thinkers and makers from fields beyond contemporary art to share ideas and unpack the many connections that exist within the broader arena of cultural production.
The Artist's Voice
This ongoing conversation series invites exhibiting artists to discuss their works on view in the context of their broader artistic practice. From traditional theater talks to ephemeral, participatory artist projects, these public dialogues provide a unique opportunity to hear directly from both emerging and established artists.
The Lea K. Green Artist Talk
The Annual Lea K. Green Artist Talk brings together exceptional artists and cultural luminaries for critical dialogues on art and society. With honorees ranging from Carrie Mae Weems to Jordan Casteel, the program acknowledges the significant contribution of artists to both the Museum’s life and the field of contemporary art. The program is named after Lea K. Green, the Museum’s Director of Special Projects from 2006 until 2011. It is with Lea’s incredible service to and love of the Studio Museum in mind that her family and friends established the Lea K. Green Memorial Fund, which supports this program honoring Lea’s incredible legacy. Click here or more information and to donate to the Lea K. Green Memorial Fund.
