The Art in Context series is part of IA&A’s International Partnership Initiative, developed in 2013 to prioritize international work between U.S. arts institutions and their counterparts abroad by creating a forum for discussion and discovery among leaders in the arts, academic, diplomatic, and policy communities. Art in Context showcases artists and cultural organizations in the broader social, economic, and political context in which they exist.
