Please join us at The Lab on Wednesday, December 11 at 7:00 PM for our free public program with Miranda Lash, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Speed Museum in Louisville. In her presentation, The Urgency of Art, Lash will discuss the crucial role of artists and artist-run spaces, looking specifically at case studies in New Orleans, Appalachia, and Athens, Greece.

Miranda Lash is the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky and a board member for the Joan Mitchell Foundation. Her recent exhibitions at the Speed include Yinka Shonibare: The American Library (co-curated with Alice Gray Stites), Keltie Ferris: *O*P*E*N*, and BRUCE CONNER: FOREVER AND EVER (co-curated with Dean Otto). Her 2017 exhibition Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art, co-organized with Trevor Schoonmaker, garnered praise from sources including The New York Times, Hyperallergic, and NPR. Lash was a member of the Artistic Director's Council for the international triennial Prospect.4 in New Orleans (2017-2018). Currently she is the 2019 Curatorial Fellow for ARCAthens, a residency program based in Athens, Greece.

From 2008 to 2014, Lash was the founding curator of modern and contemporary art at the New Orleans Museum of Art. There she curated over twenty exhibitions, including the large-scale traveling retrospective exhibition Mel Chin: Rematch and the exhibitions Rashaad Newsome: King of Arms; Katie Holten: Drawn to the Edge; Swoon: Thalassa; Wayne Gonzales: Light to Dark, Dark to Light; and Parallel Universe: Quintron and Miss Pussycat Live at City Park.

Artadia's Art & Dialogue is a national program designed to expand support for Artadia's growing network of Awardees. Artadia currently supports over 330 Awardees working in a diverse array of disciplines in six cities across the country. Developed through in-depth research of artists' needs, Art & Dialogue forges connections between visual artists, curators, and diverse publics in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco through a series of studio visits, public programs, and online engagement. The program invites prominent national and international curators to visit Artadia's six active award cities to conduct studio visits with Awardees and to present free public talks at Artadia's many local partner organizations.
