This workshop was co-organized by Jehra Patrick, artist, program director for the Emerging Curators Institute, and director and curator for the Law Warschaw Gallery at Macalester College, and Boris Oicherman, Cindy and Jay Ihlenfeld Curator for Creative Collaboration at WAM.
Curating as Artistic Practice is a part of the programming series of the Emerging Curators Institute (ECI), and is a collaboration between WAM and ECI. ECI is supported by John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as part of its Knight Arts Challenge, and by the Metro Regional Arts Council through an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
