On January 26, 2018, VoCA and SFMOMA will present a one-day gathering to convene many of the diverse voices in our network—artists, art historians, conservators, curators, educators, and more—to mark and measure six years of VoCA’s signature program, the Artist Interview Workshop. By providing a platform for thought leaders to share and discuss their innovative projects, this event will reflect on the Workshop’s lasting impact while pointing to the practices that will carry contemporary art stewardship into the future. The VoCA Summit is open to all, including those who have attended an Artist Interview Workshop in the past as well as those who have not.
