Visiting Curator Series: Alice Gray Stites | November 5th @ 5:30pm | Virtual | Studios Inc and 21c Museum Hotel Kansas City are partnering to host a virtual Visiting Curator Series
Studios Inc and 21c Museum Hotel Kansas City are partnering to host a virtual Visiting Curator Series, in which regional and national curators are invited to share about their practices, goals, and vision in regards to establishing community and destination through a focus of fine art. Studios Inc provides studio space, professional development, networking and exhibitions for mid-career artists in Greater Kansas City. Each visiting curator will have a virtual studio visit with two artist residents from Studios as part of this program.
Our first visiting curator is Alice Gray Stites, Museum Director and Chief Curator of 21c Museum Hotels based in Louisville, KY with 8 other locations including Lexington, Durham, Cincinnati, Nashville, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Bentonville, and Chicago. Alice curates exhibitions and oversees commissions, cultural programming, and museum operations for 21c’s multiple venues, in addition to collaborating with Steve Wilson and Laura Lee Brown on art sourcing and acquisitions. Prior to this role with 21c, Alice was Director of artwithoutwalls, Adjunct Curator for the Speed Art Museum, and has served in various editorial roles for ARTnews, Contemporanea, and Art & Auction.
