MACP Distinguished Global Curator Lecture: Kate Fowle Asks What It Really Means to be “Artist-Centered”
Initially trained as an artist, Kate Fowle has conceptually put artists at the heart of creating new infrastructures and reinventing established non-profits, through leadership or curatorial roles at a wide range of institutions including Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, the MA in Curatorial Practice at CCA in San Francisco, Independent Curators International (ICI), and most recently MoMA PS1. And yet, the most complex questions remain pragmatic ones surrounding how a curator or cultural institution can be truly and rigorously artist-centered.

The Curatorial Roundtable is an international forum for curators and institutional leaders to discuss formative and current projects, taking place on Wednesdays.
