CALL/VoCA Talk: A Panel Discussion with Legacy Specialists
December 6, 2019 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Whitney Museum Senior Curatorial Assistant Christie Mitchell will moderate a discussion with artists Lehna Huie and Beth Krebs, who were trained by the Joan Mitchell Foundation as Legacy Specialists to assist artists participating in the Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) initiative. They will reflect on how this intergenerational collaboration continues to influence their own artistic practice, and produce new approaches to the creation and preservation of contemporary art. This program is free and open to the public, but we ask that you RSVP in advance.
