Wilson Auditorium - 7 PM
The world of contemporary visual art is often intimidating, challenging, and seemingly
unapproachable. To help break those perceptions and barriers, New Jersey Museum of
Contemporary Art will present “Art Conversations,” a series of three scholar-led panel talks that
will provide context and insight into what defines contemporary art, its transformational trends,
and its relevance and impact on society. The highly credentialed and charismatic United Nations
journalist Alexandra King will moderate conversations with art critics, collectors, curators,
technology producers, and artists.
This panel will focus on Insights into the nuances and impact of contemporary visual art on society and will feature STEPHEN WESTFALL, artist and critic who is a contributing editor to Art in America; ISAAC LYLES owner of the Lyles King Gallery in NYC; and art collector STEVE SHANE.
