How do we make art with people, places, and things? Curator Christina Yang, former BAMPFA chief curator, engages in an open-ended, behind-the-scenes conversation with Professor Lisa Wymore about the oftentimes sacred and profane task of curating performance as an expanded interdisciplinary practice in museums. This program asks what changes in curatorial work when bodies are foregrounded as works of art or perhaps how traditional principles can be upheld when a person or animal is in our care.

Christina Yang is a Ph.D candidate in performance studies at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Her previous positions include curatorial roles at the Williams College Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, The Kitchen, and Queens Museum. She is a graduate of UC Berkeley and the Williams College Graduate Program in Art History.
