The Komal Shah and Gaurav Garg Artist Conversation Series
Stanford University is the home of interdisciplinary thinking that catalyzes innovation. Artists on the Future is a conversation series that pairs world-famous artists with cultural thought leaders from various fields to talk about issues vital to our society. These public events bring those working at the highest levels of human expression, creative thinking, and aesthetic impact into our deepest national conversations.
After a successful foundation with Stanford’s Office of the Vice President for the Arts, the series is now hosted by the Cantor Arts Center. The program is free and open to both members of the Stanford community and the public.
This program is generously supported by Komal Shah and Gaurav Garg.
