Coffee with a Curator

November 15, 2017 / 10:30am12:00pm

Join us for coffee and conversation with University Circle’s best and brightest curators. Over the course of four weeks, you will have the opportunity to sit and chat with different curators from University Circle’s most distinguished institutions. This is your opportunity to discover what curators do, why they do it, how they got their start, and how their research and discoveries impact the museums, your lives and, in some cases, the world.

The tour will be led by MOCA's Senior Curator, Andria Hickey. Hickey has earned national attention as a leading voice in contemporary art. Most recently, she was curator of New York's Public Art Fund, for which she organized numerous outdoor at exhibitions with international contemporary artists between 2011 and 2016. She held prior curatorial positions at New York's Art in General and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

MOCA Cleveland's Fall 2017 Exhibition Season features a major group exhibition titled, A Poethical Wager, which brings together a group of international artists who share an intensive, research-based practice that results in abstract artworks connecting poetic form with ethical considerations. Also on view will be British artist Phil Collins' My heart's in my hand, (2013), a collaborative installation of six listening booths that house vinyl recordings of original music made in response to a socially-engaged project by the artist to combat homelessness in Cologne, Germany.
