To understand the world of contemporary art, think of the artist as the hub, with an array of stakeholders—among them, curators, collectors, critics—as the spokes. Each has a stake in the other; together, they’re a symbiotic ecosystem in which artistic insight, social prestige, and great wealth hang in the balance.

Join a fascinating conversation between a major contemporary artist and the professionals whose livelihoods are linked to their work on Thursday, September 10, 2020, 7:00 – 8:30 pm, when the Bruce Museum hosts a Zoom webinar: Curator, Collector, Critic, Creator: What Is ‘Contemporary Art’ Today?

A Virtual Conversation with Artist Joe Fig, Gallerist Cristin Tierney, Collector Monroe Denton, Critic Christian Viveros-Fauné, and Curator Dr. Amy Gilman
