Lessons from Contemporary Art

BY MARY HEATHCOTT
@ VOL 19 ON AUG 25, 2015

Mary Heathcott has worked in the contemporary art world for nearly 20 years. Throughout her career she has been challenged to explain, translate, defend, evaluate and inspire support for art that often is challenging, thought-provoking, and even ugly. In her talk, she presents lessons contemporary art has taught her: whether it’s playful, somber or obscure, art champions experimentation, ideas, dialogue and more.
