Curator Talk with Valerie Cassel Oliver

Art Talk

As part of their new series “Talks,” Locust Projects and ArtCenter present a night with Curator Valerie Cassel Oliver, the Oliver, Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Launched in February, Talks presents conversations with top contemporary art curators, and is the first partnership between nonprofits Locust Projects and ArtCenter/South Florida, two of the city’s most venerable cultural institutions. During intimate conversations throughout 2018, six arts leaders will talk about their curatorial vision and practice, the art and artists that have shaped their careers, and how they support the work of artists, whether in museums or non-traditional spaces. As a part of the series, the curators will visit the studios of local artists, providing vital feedback and visibility that can build a bridge between artists working in Miami and the international cultural community.
