IHP Curatorial Lab holds monthly roundtable gatherings at artist studios, galleries and museums to facilitate dialog relating to contemporary art practices. By gathering a group of professionals from different disciplines; the conversations act as a visual learning lab and facilitator to understanding current art practices; how curators or museum administrators view artists and work; and more importantly how the public interprets what creatives do.
Our roundtable discussions are meant to promote cross-sector dialogue about the arts; but also how we as artists and cultural curators can contribute to solving societal problems. Each Roundtable focuses on a specific topic or artist. This meeting focused on the solo show [Reality Check] by artist Dana Donaty at the Fordistas Gallery. It is on view through September 9th, Monday -Thursday 10am-5pm.
