Museum Confidential Live in Reno with Cannupa Hanska Luger
Join us for a live recording of Museum Confidential, a popular podcast syndicated on National Public Radio and Spotify, that lifts the curtain on museum practices, art world issues, and culture-makers. Inspired by the Nevada Museum of Art’s Indigenous Art Futures Initiative and the current exhibition Cannupa Hanska Luger: Speechless, podcast founder Jeff Martin will host a lively conversation with Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota) and Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, Apsara DiQuinzio, about Luger’s practice, the inspiration for the exhibition, and more. The program will also celebrate the launch of the exhibition catalog produced in conjunction with the exhibition, and the artist will be available to sign copies.
About Museum Confidential:
Think of a museum. Any museum. Which artworks get displayed, and which don’t, and why? Where do they keep all the unshown (or unshowable) pieces? And why do they keep them at all? Museum Confidential was originally an unprecedented exhibition at Philbrook Museum of Art exploring such questions; it’s now a popular podcast that is posted twice monthly, from September through May — a creative partnership between Jeff Martin of Philbrook and Scott Gregory of Public Radio Tulsa. MC covers the same fertile ground that the exhibit itself had covered, of course — plus lots of other topics relating to art, artists, museums, curators, museum-going, art history, the art market, and so on.
