Public Speaking and Media Appearances

Public speaking is critical to my curatorial and scholarly practices. As a lecturer and presenter, I have spoken with audiences ranging from collectors and specialists to elementary school students. In addition to in-person lectures and gallery talks, I have appeared on podcasts, public television, and radio.

I have listed some of my public appearances on this page. When available, I have included links to the talk or presentation.
