Presented by curator Dan Palmer

The Museum’s Core Residency Program, in collaboration with Artadia’s Art & Dialogue program, presents a talk by Dan Palmer, curator at the Public Art Fund in New York.

At the Public Art Fund, Palmer has organized exhibitions including Jean-Marie Appriou: The Horses; Liz Glynn: Open House; Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales; Tony Oursler: Tear of the Cloud; and Erwin Wurm: Hot Dog Bus. He also co-curated Commercial Break, an exhibition of digital video and photography by 23 artists exhibited on advertising screens in all five boroughs; and assisted with Ai Weiwei’s Good Fences Make Good Neighbors, an exhibition of more than 300 works responding to the global migration crisis.

Palmer previously served as assistant curator at the Jewish Museum in New York. He has contributed to publications for the Whitney Museum of American Art and Kunstmuseum Bonn, as well as media outlets including ARTnews, the Brooklyn Rail, and Guernica magazine.
