In light of recent political shifts across the globe, have you sensed a change in the position of the art institution vis-à-vis political activism?

Can an art institution go from being an object of critique to a site for organizing? How? Should the art institution play this kind of role? What other roles can or should it play?

What other institutions, curators, or publics do you look to in formulating your own institution’s position?

Recent controversies over curatorial choices have foregrounded the different ways in which institutions envision their audience(s). In your experience, is this process changing? How should it proceed?

How can an institution address the dichotomy between art as cultural entertainment and art as political inquiry? What is the role of the curator in mediating this? How does this compare to the artist’s role?

How can art institutions be better?
