A contemporary concern for many museum professionals and art historians is how to build meaningful relationships as well as engage in challenging conversations with audiences, communities, and students. In this talk, Dr. Megan Arney Johnston shares the process of Slow Curating, a reflective framework that embraces polyvocality, human connection, and place-based, contextual exhibition making. Join us as she considers the tenants of Slow Curating and shares several case studies that demonstrate its potential value as a socially engaged approach.
Dr. Megan Arney Johnston is an independent curator, educator, and museologist based in Minneapolis/St Paul area and Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK/IRE). Currently a Professor of Practice at several universities, her book Slow Curating: A Handbook for Socially Engaged Curatorial Practices, will be published by Routledge, UK – Heritage and Museum Studies in 2024.
