Museums of the 21st Century: King Britt and Mikhaile Solomon


Jun 11, 2019
06:00 PM until 08:30 PM


Philadelphia Contemporary presents Museums of the 21st Century, a series of public conversations with cultural practitioners altering our conception of what a museum can offer its public. Beginning in Fall 2018, the Philadelphia Contemporary will invite visionaries ranging from artists to architects, curators to historians, poets to public officials to consider the possibilities of the museums to come. Each talk will play host to both a local and national or international voice, offering Philadelphia audiences the opportunity to both hear more about their community and to learn from those outside the region.

The second conversation on Tuesday, June 11 will feature Mikhaile Solomon, discussing her work in founding and expanding the Prizm Art Fairin Miami, in conversation with Philadelphia-based composer and producer King Britt. Together Solomon and Britt will present their visions for the future of museums and other cultural platforms.

The African American Museum in Philadelphia is an accessible space.

This event is sponsored by the Knight Foundation.
