"Museums in a Changing World: SFMOMA and Beyond"

This lecture series is made possible by a generous grant from Fred Weintz and Rosemary Weintz.

Art museums are seeking to find their footing amidst enormous social, economic, and cultural changes. Nowhere are these changes, and challenges, more evident than San Francisco and the Bay Area, and the ways in which SFMOMA is answering the call presents a fascinating case study with broad implications. 

Katy Siegel is Research Director, Special Program Initiatives, SFMOMA, and Distinguished Professor, Stony Brook University, SUNY. She has researched, curated, and edited volumes for numerous projects including Postwar: Art Between the Atlantic and the Pacific, 1945-1965 (with Okwui Enwezor), Mark Bradford: Tomorrow Is Another Day, for the US Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (with Christopher Bedford), and Joan Mitchell (with Sarah Roberts). Her most recent book is Making Their Mark: Art by Women in the Shah/Garg Collection (edited with Mark Godfrey).
