Contemporary Talks is a rare opportunity for Atlanta audiences to hear from some of the most consequential thinkers and doers in the world of art and culture. The speakers in this free series share insights and experiences about the practical and philosophical issues that shape contemporary art, architecture, poetry, criticism, and curating, and have included Nato Thompson of Creative Time, art dealer Ronald Feldman, Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture, poet/critic John Yau, Helen Molesworth of ICA Boston, artist/performer William Pope.L, Matthew Higgs of White Columns, and Mimi Hoang, of nARCHITECTS. Now in its second year, ACAC is proud to partner with local arts, culture, and educational institutions to present Contemporary Talks.
