The Role of Miami’s Museums in the Wake of Art Basel

Thursday, January 13, 7pm – Bakehouse Art Complex, 561 NW 32nd St., Miami Wynwood Arts District

 Moderator Brett Sokol, Arts Editor for Ocean Drive Magazine, will lead a dynamic and exciting discussion with Miami’s most influential museum professionals regarding the art scene in Miami in the wake of all the changes brought on by Art Basel. Panelists will weigh the importance of embracing contemporary art within their institutions and what they feel their responsibilities are to the community as our cultural leaders. They will discuss the importance of supporting local art organizations like the Bakehouse Art Complex, and talk about their experience with BAC’s international exhibition SIN! (based on the seven deadly sins: greed, lust, envy, wrath, pride, gluttony and sloth) which they all were jurors for.

For this installment of Art Canvas the BAC will feature our brand new, state-of-the-art sound system in the Audrey Love Gallery that will allow for participation and questions from the audience.
