Curatorial practice is changing. Museum practitioners are thinking about objects, stories, relationships, and power in new ways.

Curators are no longer expected simply to be content experts: our profession, and our culture, now requires curators to excavate multi-layered meanings, honor complicated stories, and build relationships with those within and outside of the traditional museum community.

Timothy Anne Burnside, museum specialist at the National Museum of African American History and Culture (and JHU Museum Studies alum), and Kilolo Luckett, founding executive director and chief curator of the Pittsburgh-based Alma | Lewis art platform, both center their curatorial practices around creating spaces and opportunities for constructive, innovative conversations. Join us as they share their experiences and insights in a wide-ranging discussion on curatorial practice today.
