VOCA Summit

Posted on Thu, 12/14/2017 - 12:30



Date and time

This January, VoCA and SFMOMA will present a one-day gathering to convene many of the diverse voices in our network—artists, art historians, conservators, curators, educators, and more—to mark and measure six years of VoCA’s signature program, the Artist Interview Workshop. By providing a platform for thought leaders to share and discuss their innovative projects, this event will reflect on the Workshop's lasting impact while pointing to the practices that will carry contemporary art stewardship into the future.
Thanks to our support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this symposium is free of charge, but registration is required. If you would like to attend, register online at http://summit.voca.network/ by January 12, 2018. For those of you traveling from out of town, please note we have a reduced rate at the Park Central Hotel of $199 per night that will expire on December 15. Book via the VOCA Summit website.
