MASSEY DIALOGUES: Women at the Helm, January 13, 2022 from 4-5pm ET (virtual event)
Join Zainub Verjee, Executive Director of GOG and Senior Fellow of Massey College, for Massey Dialogues on Women at the Helm. She will be in conversation with author & curator Diana Nemiroff and Ottawa Art Gallery Director & CEO Alexandra Badzak.
Leadership of Cultural institutions is always an understated challenge. In tumultuous times when the meaning of culture, cultural wars, and cultural policies are in flux, how do we account for the histories of national cultural institutions as much as its future? With women at the helm, how does its leadership fare in the complex politics of cultural institutions? What role does gender play in the making of a cultural institution? In light of the publication of Women at the Helm: How Jean Sutherland Boggs, Hsio-yen Shih and Shirley L. Thomson Changed the National Gallery of Canada by Diana Nemiroff: McGill-Queens, 2021, join us for a discussion of the legacy of the first three female directors of the National Gallery of Canada.
