As guest curator for this Tuesday Evenings with the Modern program, Alejandro Cesarco, an artist who has participated in Tuesday Evenings in both the fall of 2011 and fall of 2019, has invited Kandis Williams to present her work as both an artist and as founder and editor of Cassandra Press.

As an artist, Williams has been featured in recent solo exhibitions at Night Gallery in Los Angeles and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin. Her performances have been mounted in clubs and institutions across the world, most recently at Berlin’s Ficken 3000. In addition to her curatorial work, Williams runs Cassandra Press and is currently a visiting faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts. This fall, the Institute for Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University opens Kandis Williams: A Field, highlighting all aspects of her work.

As an onsite program, Tuesday Evenings at the Modern is on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. Being There: Tuesday Evenings with the Modern is a unique and relevant online alternative.

Each presenter has been invited by a past Tuesday Evenings at the Modern participant to give a presentation on a topic of their choice. The slate of talks offers an array of perspectives in a moment when people are anxious to connect, share knowledge, and learn from each other as we strive to improve and expand our understanding of ourselves and the world through the arts.

The Being There: Tuesday Evenings with the Modern format will allow for a live experience, with questions and discussion following each 30-minute presentation. Free registration will be available one week in advance. REGISTER HERE.
