Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Strange Currencies, The Galleries at Moore host a conversation between Mexico City-based artist and activist Minerva Cuevas and Creative Time Chief Curator Nato Thompson about the effects of socially engaged art practices.

"Studio Conversations" is presented by Graduate Studies at Moore's MFA in Studio Art in partnership with The Galleries at Moore.

Funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Strange Currencies is the first exhibition to articulate a history for the unorthodox, artist-run spaces that emerged in Mexico City in the 1990s. The exhibition, accompanied by outside performances and a film program, includes artworks that have never before been shown outside of Mexico.
