Locust Projects and ArtCenter/South Florida invite for a conversation with Valerie Cassel Oliver, Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  During these intimate conversations, these art proffessionals will talk about their curatorial vision and practice, the art and artists that have shaped their careers, and how they support the work of artists whether in museums or non-traditional spaces. Each will also visit the studios of local artists, providing feedback and visibility that can build a bridge between artists working in Miami and the international cultural community.

Before joining the museum in July, 2017, Cassel Oliver was a senior curator at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. Her experience includes co-curating the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Biennial Exhibition in 2000; directing the Visiting Artists Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; and administering grants as a program specialist with the National Endowment for the Arts.
