Mainstream curation will embrace more diverse artists to reflect the demographics of the surrounding community.
Larger cultural institutions will create new spaces for local talent and art, establishing themselves as platforms to elevate regional dialogue and discussion. Centering exhibitions around art scene celebrities or well-known histories is only one mode of engagement with the public. Capturing emerging talent living in the city will unlock new opportunities to elevate community culture and support overall development in the arts.
An institution’s internal personnel and leadership structure must reflect claims of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
Announcing intentions to reform discriminatory practices and promote inclusivity will only be meaningful if institutions support their claims with tangible actions. One step is in the underlying perspectives informing curation, but another, perhaps more crucial, step is in establishing a more diverse chorus of voices in the cultural institution’s structure.
Independent local establishments will present new paths to elevate a community’s spirit and culture.
Independent galleries, performing arts clubs, and other cultural venues embedded in neighborhoods are providing new opportunities for community expression. With flexible spaces that harness easily accessible technology and media, they are offering authentic exhibition experiences that challenge audiences, provoke dialogue, and empower local voices.
