Curator Culture: Liza Lou and Congresswoman Donna Shalala
On Sunday, May 17, 2020, The Bass launched a virtual rendition of it’s popular conversation series, Curator Culture. The talk moderated by series host Tom Healy, was a virtual town hall with artist Liza Lou and Congresswoman Donna Shalala on navigating ideas of comfort, travel and community during our current, socially-distanced realities.
Over the past 2 years, the Curator Culture series at The Bass has brought together prominent artists and leading architects, scientists, journalists and influential leaders from many fields for public conversations about fostering creativity in a complicated world. The world has suddenly become much more complicated. How do we respond to the profound economic and cultural disruptions that are unfolding during this global pandemic? What opportunities exist for new ways of solving problems and working together?
Curator Culture is getting a reboot to engage these questions while The Bass and most cultural institutions must remain closed. Over the coming three months, we will be convening a series of virtual town halls, each pairing a prominent artist and a front-line political leader to propose, provoke and debate creative solutions to the urgency of our time.
