Professional Development

Table Dish: Visual Arts

Tuesday, October 1, 2019
6:30 – 9PM

The Asian American Arts Alliance is proud to offer a new initiative to further the careers of Asian Americans pursuing careers in the arts. Table Dish, our latest professional development series, will bring together experts in specific disciplines with aspiring professionals in a roundtable setting to answer questions, provide advice, and create networking and mentoring opportunities.

Our second event in the series focuses on the field of visual art. Established professionals (gallerists, curators, auction specialists, development directors, program officers, etc.) will dish out career advice and lead candid discussions about different career paths and opportunities. The roundtables are designed to provide emerging and mid-career professionals the opportunity to network and build relationships with peers and mentors, offer a genuine way for A4 established professional community members to give back, and help nurture Asian American artists and arts leaders to ensure a robust pipeline of talent in the field.

Table Dish: Visual Art will be composed of three 30-minute networking sessions. Professionals will remain at the same table while small groups of individual participants will move around every 30 minutes to meet with a total of three different leaders.

Participating Leaders:

Angela Goding, Director of Development, MoMA PS1
Irene Kim, Regional Head of VIP Relations, Americas, Art Basel
Lisa Kim, Director, Ford Foundation Gallery
Preeya Franklin, Impressionist & Modern Art Senior Specialist, Bonhams
Herb Tam, Curator and Director of Exhibitions, Museum of Chinese in America
Karen Wong, Deputy Director, New Museum

There is a $15 nonrefundable fee to register. Please list your top three leader preferences for networking sessions when you register. Due to the number of participants, we cannot guarantee matches, but the earlier you apply, the better your chances of getting paired with your top choices.

NOTE: Doors open at 6:00 and sessions begin promptly at 6:30. We cannot reschedule your sessions if you arrive late. Tickets will not be sold at the door. THIS IS NOT A PORTFOLIO REVIEW SESSION.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; CJ Huang Foundation; Con Edison; and numerous individual donors.
