BURNAWAY and Flux Projects are pleased to announce a free public talk on June 15 by Lauren Haynes, curator of contemporary art at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. Haynes will be a mentor in the fifth cycle of BURNAWAY’s Art Writers Mentorship Program, as well as the first guest in Flux Projects’s new Visiting Curator series that will invite esteemed national and international curators to conduct studio visits with Atlanta-based artists throughout the year.
Prior to joining Crystal Bridges in October of 2016, Haynes worked at the Studio Museum in Harlem for almost ten years. She will discuss her transition from New York City to Bentonville, her curatorial practice, and how her approach to curating has changed since the move. What does it mean to curate contemporary art away from a major art center? What does it mean to go from a mission-specific institution to a museum with a collection spanning from the colonial period to today?
WHEN: June 15, 7 – 8:30pm
WHERE: Atlanta Contemporary
Free and open to the public!
