Paper Monument's 2018 anthology, As Radical, As Mother, As Salad, As Shelter: What Should Art Institutions Do Now?, surveyed 30 curators on the contemporary social role and responsibilities of art institutions. From Sackler divestment to protests against Whitney board members, art institutions continue to make headlines and evolve in the public eye. How do institutions envision and engage with their audiences in this changing landscape? What do we ask of institutions, and what do—or could—they give us? Editor Roger White will moderate a panel discussion that reflects on contributions to the anthology in light of 2019's protests and refusals, with with Chloë Bass, Ken Chen, and Lori Cole.
