Lectures & Studio Visits

Lectures at On the Boards

On the Boards is a leader in the civic and global dialogue around contemporary art and performance. Starting with the 18/19 Season a new lecture series brings curators from around the world to Seattle. While here these arts leaders will each do 5-8 studio visits with artists based in the greater Seattle area and deliver a public lecture about contemporary performance and their own practice. This series provides national and international curators an opportunity to gain greater insight into the work being done in our region while simultaneously fostering connections with voices from outside the Pacific Northwest.
