Curatorial Think Tank: Culturally-Specific Museums

ICI Curatorial Hub Closed-door Event In light of the recent decision by the Museum of Modern Art, New York to hire a consulting curator to help with “the strengthening of its holdings” in black art, this closed door session addressed the idea of “progress” made by ethnic specific institutions and the nature of curatorial work within these institutions in today’s social and cultural conditions. Specifically, this think tank discussion explored why the work of culturally specific museums still matters decades after they were founded, and what new possibilities exist for this work now and for the future. Participants included: Herb Tam (Curator and Director of Exhibitions, Museum of Chinese in America), Rocio Aranda-Alvarado (Curator, El Museo del Barrio), Edwin Ramoran (Manager of Public Programs and Community Engagement, The Studio Museum in Harlem), Naima J. Keith (Assistant Curator, The Studio Museum in Harlem), and Ryan Wong (Program Director, Asian American Writers’ Workshop).
