SCHOOL OF THOUGHT
Thursday 16 April 6 pm
Not-yet Members $20
Join us for a conversation with Franklin Sirmans, Executive Director of the Pérez Art Museum, and Sarasota Art Museum’s Executive Director, Anne-Marie Russell, about the state of contemporary art museums and the challenges we face today in terms of shifting societal expectations. Relative to the art museum, how can we maintain scrutiny, accountability, and decolonization efforts in the face of a rapidly shifting world on the global and local scale?
Franklin Sirmans has been the director of the Pérez Art Museum, Miami since 2015. Previously serving as the curator of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Sirmans has an extensive background in the fields of art criticism, curating, and writing.
