Moderated Conversation with Ms. Moore, Mr. Thompson and
Jeremy STRICK, Director, Nasher Sculpture Center

Join the Dallas Architecture Forum for an afternoon focused on how the Chinati Foundation and MASS MoCA, two highly acclaimed centers for contemporary art, have repurposed abandoned spaces to create innovative and internationally recognized centers for the display of art. These museums have created opportunities for visitors to interact with art – in unusual and unique settings – in dramatic yet intimate ways. The Forum’s 2017 Design Symposium will present Chinati Director Jenny Moore and MASS MoCA Director Joseph Thompson in compelling conversation as they each overview their organizations. They’ll discuss how their sites were repurposed for the display of art, with emphasis on how the size of their venues provide opportunities to present art at a scale and scope not possible in most conventional art museums. Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will discuss highlights of the significant collections on display at their museums. Ms. Moore will also overview the new master plan recently completed for Chinati, while Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus expansion that opened this year.
