DESCRIPTION

AAMC & AAMC Foundation present Curators: Agents of Change from 'Inside and Outside' the Box (of the Museum) at the 2017 College Art Association (CAA) Conference. In recent years, curators have responded in a variety of ways to changes in how art is practiced and consumed, audience demographics and lifestyles, and shifting disciplinary boundaries. How has curating from ‘inside and outside’ the box (of the museum) affected curatorial practice? How do we understand the role that curators have played (and continue to play) in this shifting landscape? And how can we prepare curators to be agents of change in the wider museum field? The speakers selected for this panel bring a variety of perspectives to these questions. Their experiences will bring into focus changes in the curatorial landscape and promote dialogue about best practices.

Nii Quarcoopome holds a doctorate in art history from the University of California, Los Angeles. Following an initial career in teaching at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and brief employment at the Newark Museum, he joined the Detroit Institute of Arts as Curator of African Art in 2002 and subsequently as department head for the Arts of Africa, Oceania and Indigenous Americas. Since coming to Detroit, he has worked closely with interpretive educators to reinstall the museum’s African galleries and is currently involved in a similar project for the Asian galleries. His scholarly research provided the foundation for his 2010 groundbreaking exhibition “Through African Eyes: The European in African Art, 1500-Present”, which was not only funded by the National Endowment of the Arts and National Endowment of the Humanities Grants but also, earned the American Association of Museums’ highest honor for overall excellence. His recently ended four-year stint as a shared curator at the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, was a first in the history of American museums. Quarcoopome is currently Co-Chief Curator and member of the DIA’s leadership team.
