An insider's tour of the exhibitions followed by an in-depth conversation about how art, museums and our collective knowledge enhance human resilience amid pressing changes.
Art provides a most complex form of knowledge — complex enough to invite ambiguity into the conversation — and has always led the way in the development and circulation of ideas across all disciplines. The 21st century art museum needs to start with that vital, active social position and expand the movement of ideas through the use of the newest technologies.
Join ASU Art Museum Director Gordon Knox for an insider's tour of the ASU Art Museum's exhibitions, then enjoy an in-depth conversation about how art, museums and our collective knowledge enhance human resilience in a time of pressing changes.
Gordon Knox is the director of the ASU Art Museum. Previously a core collaborator at the Stanford Humanities Lab, Knox developed international projects that connect artists, writers and musicians with scientists and technologists to develop contexts that expand the circulation of ideas and advance social justice.
Knox was the founding director of the Civitella Ranieri Foundation in Italy and has advised numerous international residency programs and commission-oriented cultural institutions in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa in the areas of program design, identification of talent and international collaboration.
