In 2021, The Armory Show will host the fourth annual Curatorial Leadership Summit chaired by Valerie Cassel Oliver


The Armory Show’s Curatorial Leadership Summit is an annual, invitation-only daylong program that aims to foster innovation in the curatorial landscape. Previous summits have invited museum directors and curators from around the world to explore, debate, and challenge important topics addressing the curatorial community. Following the closed-door session, panelists will deliver a keynote presentation which is open to the public.


Winter webinars and 2021 Curatorial Leadership Summit programs will be announced soon. The next Curatorial Leadership Summit will be open to the public. For further information please contact Andrew Cabridens at

"What happens within the museum may seem peripheral to the world around us, but the reality is that it has the power to shape our understanding of who we are as a community." — Valerie Cassel Oliver
