Black Futures: On Race in Art, Curation, and Digital Engagement with Kimberly Drew
Kimberly Drew has been dubbed an “international tastemaker in contemporary art” on account of her Tumblr blog Black Contemporary Art and her Instagram @museummammy. As social media manager at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she has been pivotal in moving that venerated institution in directions both democratic and dialogical. Drew will discuss curation, social media, race, and institutions with Stephen Best, a professor of English at UC Berkeley.
