Join Our Curatorial Fellows for Talks on Paño Arte, Indigenous Print Design, and More


From reframing how the art world sees art made in prison to Indigenous print design, we’re excited to share what our five curatorial fellows have been working on over the past several months. This February and March, join us for weekly conversations with the Hyperallergic fellows and learn about the inspiration and process behind their unique projects.

Free and open to the public, these virtual events provide a space for the curators to discuss the exhibitions they created during their fellowships — and answer questions from readers. Registration is required to attend.
