CAC's In Conversation series invites Chicago's arts and cultural visionaries to explore important topics shaping the field today.

Using Chicago Artists Coalition's 2018 ANNUAL exhibition, Mixtapes for the Next Millennium, as a starting point, the exhibition's curator, Jordan Martins, will discuss the exhibition process from start to finish in conversation with artist and arts administrator Meg Duigud. They will share insights into critical considerations and milestones that inform their respective curatorial processes, including: conducting studio visits, sales agreements and other contracts with artists, partnering with host organizations, securing sponsorships, and more.

CAC welcomes you to join us at 5:30pm for social time with refreshments, with the program beginning promptly at 6:00pm
