The Evening Lecture Series is free and open to the public. With inquiries, please contact Kara Carmack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is not required to attend in person.
Veronica Roberts is the John and Jill Freidenrich Director of the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University. She joined the Cantor in July 2022 after holding curatorial positions at the Blanton Museum of Art, MoMA, and the Whitney Museum. Day Jobs, an exhibition she curated, will open at the Cantor in March 2024. Conceived as a corrective to traditional art historical narratives, Day Jobs encourages us to openly acknowledge the precarious and generative ways that economic and creative pursuits are intertwined. The exhibition features emerging and established artists, including Mark Bradford, Lenka Clayton, Matthew Angelo Harrison, Tishan Hsu, Margaret Kilgallen and Lillian Schwartz.
Veronica is a San Francisco native. She was a 2021 fellow of the Center for Curatorial Leadership. She received her MA from UC Santa Barbara and her BA in art history from Williams College.
