This talk addresses how a major conservative global shift, as well as rapidly changing demographics and economies, may threaten art and culture in the Americas. What impact will such shifts have on artists, patrons, museums, galleries and writers? A range of art professionals will offer their unique perspectives as they weigh in on how they are responding to these new conditions and what they imagine for the years to come. How are funding bodies adjusting to this situation? What can institutions do to stay nimble and active? Is culture at risk?
