ST. LOUIS, MO.- Each year, as part of its mission to promote the local arts community, the Contemporary invites internationally renowned critics and curators to St. Louis. During his or her stay, each distinguished guest arranges studio visits with local artists, is introduced to local writers, curators, as well as area art galleries and institutions, and delivers a free public lecture at the Contemporary. The Emerson Visiting Critics and Curators series provides an important opportunity for artists in St. Louis to have their work reviewed by internationally renowned critics and curators, while working to raise the visibility of St. Louis as an exciting and important cultural center.
This year, the Contemporary presents Nato Thompson, Curator and Producer at Creative Time in New York. Since joining Creative Time in February 2007, Thompson has been an important collaborator for an institution committed to producing new public art in New York City. More information on Mr. Thompson's career and contributions is available on our website.
If you are an artist and would like to apply for a studio visit by Nato Thompson, please visit the Contemporary website for submission details. http://www.contemporarystl.org/visitingcriticsandcurators.php
