Museums of the 21st Century, featuring Richard Pell and Niki Stewart
Friday, September 13, 2019
6:30 PM-8:00 PM
Philadelphia Contemporary presents “Museums of the 21st Century,” a series of public conversations with the founders, writers, curators and artists altering our conception of what a museum can offer its public.
The third conversation will feature artist Richard Pell, the Founder and Curator at the Center for Post Natural History in Pittsburgh, in conversation with Niki Stewart, Chief Learning and Engagement Officer at Philadelphia’s Academy of Natural Sciences. At this free event, Pell and Stewart will each present their perspectives on the future of natural history museums, as well as potential intersections between scientific research, public intellectual platforms and contemporary art.
Since fall 2018, Philadelphia Contemporary has invited visionaries ranging from artists to architects, curators to historians and poets to public officials to consider the possibilities of the museums to come. Each talk will play host to both a Philadelphia-based thinker and a national or international voice, offering audiences the opportunity to both hear more about their community and to learn from those outside the region.
