Returning to Charlotte Street is the four-part series Curating the Here and Now, highlighting exceptional curatorial voices in the Midwest. The selected curators will visit Kansas City to speak about their recent exhibitions and curatorial practice.

For this program, Jeremy Chen will speak about his practice as an artist, organizer, and educator. Most recently, Chen’s work was on view at the Grinnell College Museum of Art for the exhibition Devices, Tools, Objects, and Props: Recent Work by Jeremy Chen. This exhibition of sculptural works prompted contemplation on the manifold meanings and uses of objects or things, and our complex entanglement with materials. Chen will discuss curating this work in the context of a college museum, as well as his experiences organizing shows with artist-run spaces.
