New York, August 15, 2018 – Registration has opened for Navigating Social Media, a live webinar hosted by the AAMC Foundation. Moderated by Fernanda Pitta, Senior Curator at Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo; Lecturer in the History of Art at the Escola da Cidade, in São Paulo, and featuring Graham C. Boettcher, The R. Hugh Daniel Director, Birmingham Museum of Art; Jennifer Scanlan, Curatorial and Exhibitions Director, Oklahoma Contemporary; and Masha Turchinsky, Director, Hudson River Museum, this conversation will delve into the challenges and advantages of social media activity for curators in the non-profit sector.

Social media is a central part of how we all communicate. Curators are increasingly encouraged to create public digital selves, either in a professional capacity or privately, in order to help promote and expand networks for themselves and their organizations. They have also been taking advantage of social media platforms to discover emerging artists, new programs and different forms of artistic experience.

This webinar, open to members and non-members, will investigate questions such as: What are the inherent challenges in shaping and navigating our public personas? How does one define the boundaries of public and private? Is it possible to build meaningful curatorial acts on social platforms?

Registration is available through the AAMC Foundation website:

Navigating Social Media is part of the AAMC Foundation’s webinar series, which offers live online discussions on essential skills, timely issues, and latest discoveries that define the profession of an art curator, and enhance understanding and development in the field. This coming year of webinar topics have been developed around the central theme of the “outward-facing-curator,” dissecting ways in which curators collaborate and engage with audiences internally & externally.
