The BC Museums Association IBPOC Museum Professional Network presents a conversation with Vanessa Kwan, artist/curator and Program Director of grunt gallery, and Nya Lewis, independent curator and Founder and Director of BlackArt Gastown. Through their curatorial practices, both Nya and Vanessa maintain extensive engagement with the various communities in Vancouver and a deep commitment to ensuring that fellow artists and curators are recognized in this sector. With the role of the curator continuing to evolve beyond static collections and gallery presentation, and the sector’s reliance on contractors and auxiliary positions, how do curators negotiate with both institutions and the public on community needs, history, and permanence?
This IBPOC Museum Professionals Network is supported by the Royal Bank of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
