“Open Museums”: Thelma Golden, Paulo Herkenhoff, and Vasif Kortun

How is the role of the museum changing in today’s global art capitals? How are curators around the world reimagining the relationship between museums and publics? Join us for a conversation with three internationally renowned curators: Thelma Golden (Studio Museum in Harlem), Paulo Herkenhoff (Museu de Arte, Rio de Janeiro), and Vasif Kortun (SALT, Istanbul/Ankara). Art historian Anne Higonnet (Barnard College) will moderate; Simone Douglas (Parsons) and Public Books Editor in Chief Sharon Marcus (Columbia) will introduce the event. RSVP here.

This event is co-sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Humanities at Columbia University, Parsons Fine Arts, the Institute for Public Knowledge, the Columbia Global Center | Rio de Janeiro, and the Columbia Global Center | Istanbul.
