What does diversity mean today? What are the implications for museums, artists, and their audiences? And what hard work still lies ahead?

Madeleine Grynsztejn, MCA Pritzker Director, led the discussion with political scientist Melissa Harris-Lacewell, artist Glenn Ligon, and interdisciplinary artist Tania Bruguera. Sponsored by the MCA's Audience Development and Diversity Committee and Merrill Lynch. Season support for the MCA lecture and conversation series is generously provided by The Albert Pick, Jr. Fund.
