About Art & Dialogue:
Developed through in-depth research of artists’ needs, Art & Dialogue will bridge connections between artists, curators, and audiences in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Art & Dialogue is a unique program in that it serves three distinct audiences: curators, artists and the city’s general public. Art & Dialouge will bring curators directly to the studios of Awardees working around the country, and will offer participants the opportunity to engage in meaningful, open conversation about their practice.

For the inaugural season of Art and Dialogue, Artadia will send six curators from institutions across the United States to visit each of its Award cities. Each Art & Dialogue program will consist of three parts: curators will conduct studio visits with Awardees, present a public program with a local cultural partner, and provide a summary of their experience upon returning to their home institution. All Art & Dialogue programs will be documented, anthologized on Artadia’s website, and publicized internationally.
